Danil Nagy is a designer and senior research scientist with The Living group within Autodesk Research. He specializes in computational design and generative geometry, as well as data mining and visualization. Danil was project manager of the Hy-Fi installation at the MoMA PS1 courtyard in Queens, New York. He has also been closely involved in a long-term collaboration with Airbus, including the Bionic Partition project. More recently Danil has been exploring new potentials in reality capture and virtual reality environments, and what these technologies could mean for the future of architecture and design.
Danil graduated from the Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation with a Masters of Architecture in 2010 and a Masters of Science in Urban Planning in 2011.
