About Titchkosky:

Titchkosky is co-CEO of BVN and Strategic Champion of Digital Innovation and Robotics. She is interested in future scenarios and possibilities that can emerge through a project. She is passionate about the role architects play in shaping our interactions, communities and cities and continually seeks to effect change through projects. Titchkosky is interested in the changing nature of architectural practice and the potential for new ways of engaging in the design and construction process. She is passionate about the possibilities that new technologies offer, enabling us to design and build smarter and more creatively, with outcomes that are better for the planet. She is leading BVN’s research into robotics and digital fabrication, including large-scale 3D printing and circular economy principles. Her most recent projects are the new Atlassian Headquarters, set to be the world’s tallest hybrid timber tower. Her work has been recognised through numerous awards nationally and internationally, including a RIBA International Award and a World Architecture Award commendation. She is currently a Commissioner on the Commission for the Future of Sydney CBD, which examines the changing nature of Sydney in a post COVID-19 world.


About Schork:
Dr Schork is the Associate Professor of Architectural Construction Technologies and Material Systems in the School of Architecture within the Faculty of Design, Architecture & Building (DAB) at the University of Technology Sydney (UTS). He is the foundation co-director of the Transformative Technologies Lab and a member of the UTS Centre for Advanced Manufacturing and UTS Institute of Robotics. The Transformative Technologies Lab is an interdisciplinary research platform that pools together expertise from the fields of architecture, industrial design, visual communications, interaction design, engineering, mechatronics, computer and materials science.

Dr Schork received his PhD from RMIT University in 2013 for his research on the transformative effects and contributory role of integrative computational design strategies on the practices of architecture. His award-winning and internationally recognised research investigates the progressive integration of advanced manufacturing technology and low-carbon materials into architectural practice and construction. His interdisciplinary research aims to harness the full potential of digital technology and to rethink design and construction with the goal of enabling game-changing innovation and a decarbonised building culture.
