Hakim Hasan specializes in robotic fabrication and computational design research. In 2015 Hakim completed his Bachelor of Architecture from Kennesaw State University. Upon earning a master’s degree in Digital Fabrication and Robotics from ETH Zurich, he leveraged his expertise to develop an innovative process of aggregating soft particles at Gramazio Kohler Research. This process further led him to a teaching stint at the Norman Foster Foundation Robotics Atelier. Since 2015, Hakim has actively participated in practice-based research at Perkins and Will, and in 2018 he became a lead researcher for the Building Technology Lab with a focus on architectural robotics. Hakim’s pioneering work with the development of the Mobile Robotic Assistant for Architectural Design platform, referred to as MRAAD, generates a revolutionary discourse in the AEC industry. Hakim’s current research investigates design opportunities for on-site robotic construction in collaboration with top industry-leading partners.
