After two years of architectural studies in Bucharest, Romania, Stefana Parascho transferred to the University of Stuttgart where she developed her strong interest in geometry and computational design while studying at the Institute for Computational Design and the Institute of Building Structures and Structural Design under the lead of Prof. Achim Menges and Prof. Jan Knippers. During and after her studies she worked at Knippers Helbig Advanced Engineering, and at designtoproduction, both Stuttgart. After her studies Stefana Parascho was involved in the planning and realisation of the ICD/ITKE Research Pavilion 2013/14 as a research associate at the Institute of Building Structures and Structural Design. She has taught several seminars and workshops in Germany and Romania. Since then her research focus has been integrative design methods through the application of biological principles such as self-organisation or evolutionary algorithms. As a PhD researcher at the Chair of Architecture and Digital Fabrication at ETH Zurich, Stefana Parascho joined the NCCR Digital Fabrication in September 2014.
