Kristína G. Rypáková received a Fulbright scholarship
We cordially congratulate our colleague, pedagogue from the Department of Architectural Creation, Kristína G. Rypáková, who received a prestigious Fulbright scholarship for her research and teaching stay in the United States of America.
Kristína G. Rypáková is a graduate of Die Angewandte in Vienna, where she completed her master's degree in architecture with honors in 2013 (Studio Wolf Prix - Coop Himmelb(l)au and Hani Rashid - Asymptote Architecture). Since 2013, she has been teaching at the Department of Architectural Creation of the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Bratislava, and at the same time she cooperates with architectural studios in Vienna. In 2020, at the AFAD in Bratislava, she successfully defended her dissertation on the topic "Non/mathematical prototypes and typologies", in which she investigated the ways of mathematizing architecture and its notations in relation to the generative procedures of designing architecture and in connection with its created form. In the fall of 2020, she also became part of the teaching team of the newly established study program Digital Arts (AFAD).
As part of the Fulbright scholarship, Kristína will work at the Harvard Graduate School of Design in Boston and devote herself to researching the relationships between architecture, mathematics and computer science in the context of contemporary complex architectural forms using AI and new prototyping technologies.
In addition to Kristína G. Rypáková, our other colleague Olja Traiška Stefanović, who is currently at Parsons School of Design in New York on a research and teaching stay, also received a Fulbright scholarship this year.
