Kazuki Hayashi is a researcher and programmer at the intersection of architectural design and structural engineering. His research aims to revolutionize design and construction processes through novel computational methods, not only to support architectural designers and structural engineers. He obtained a Master of Engineering and Ph. D. at Kyoto University. His dissertation was about the application of machine learning to the design of skeletal structures, such as trusses and frames. During his Ph. D., he studied at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) as a visiting student. From Septemper 2023 to August 2024, he is an invited researcher at École nationale des ponts et chaussées (ENPC).
