Dr Sascha Bohnenberger-Fehr

Lecturer, Architecture


Sascha Bohnenberger-Fehr is lecturer of Architecture at Swinburne University of Technology. Besides his involvement in research and academia he is also working as Managing Director for Bollinger+Grohmann in Melbourne. Previously he taught in the Undergraduate Program at Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology and was involved as external consultant for design studios at Melbourne University, Monash University, The University of Sydney and the University of New South Wales. He holds postgraduate degrees from University in Kassel and completed his PhD at RMIT Spatial Information Architecture Laboratory in 2013.
Dr. Bohnenberger-Fehr is interested in the design and analysis of complex geometries, interactive systems, digital design processes and the materiality of the built environment. His research focuses on sustainable material systems, future construction technologies and workflows to effectively communicate and collaborate with engineers and architects alike.
He has worked on many award-winning national and international projects such as the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne designed by SANAA, the Musée des Confluences in Lyon by Coop Himmelb(l)au and the Monash University Business School designed by NH Architecture. His research into the future of fabrication technologies often correlate with his work on sculptures, public artworks and experimental architecture. In projects like the Floe installation for the NGV Triennial in 2018 by Studio Roland Snooks and the Interchange Pavilion at South Eveleigh by Studio Chris Fox, Dr. Bohnenberger-Fehr explores the boundaries between art, architecture and engineering. 
He has led and organised workshops at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, University of Kassel, Städelschule Architecture Class in Frankfurt, RMIT, Melbourne University and University of Sydney. His research has been published in journals, conferences and books.
