Personal profile


My research looks at how computer programs affect the way we think and make architecture. Much like drawings or texts, programming shapes what becomes the matter of architecture. Through a historical lens, I examine the ways in which programming techniques relate to and reflect larger economic, social, and political processes. I particularly look at how programs imply a set of literacies which organize the values, knowledges, and subjects involved in their reading and writing, much like drawings, formulas, legal documents, or theoretical texts do otherwise.  My current research, for example, examines the history of software in urban planning, supported by a research grant from VR, the Swedish Research Council. I obtained my PhD from KTH in Stockholm in 2018 and was a postdoctoral fellow at the Department of Architecture at MIT in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 2022.
