The Master of Environmental Design graduate on gaining international experience while at UCalgary and finding a surprising interest in robotics

Matt Walker just earned his third degree from the University of Calgary. All of them helped him grow his computational design skills and appreciation for making built spaces.  

During his time at UCalgary, Walker worked on design teams at Mercedes + Singh and the School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape’s (SAPL) Laboratory for Integrative Design. He specializes in the intersection of computational agency, geometry and materials, and is interested in how the combination of those can be used to improve material performance, environmental sustainability and digital tool thinking.  

Walker graduated with a Master of Environmental Design in fall 2021; he also holds BA’18 and MArch’20 degrees. He took a few minutes to answer our questions about his time at the University of Calgary. (read more)

Update: Matt is now working for the computational design and research team ZHCODE at London's Zaha Hadid Architects
