Ursula Frick is an architect with a strong interest in computational design and digital fabrication. She graduated with a degree in architecture from the University of Innsbruck, Austria advised by Patrik Schumacher. In 2007, she founded, the collective [uto] together with her research partner, Thomas Grabner. Their research focused, along with the generation and analysis of complex geometries, on the development of formal strategies and data-driven design approaches. From 2011 to 2013 she has been employed as a teaching and research associate at the University of Innsbruck. As such, her teaching and research concentrated on the development of generative structures, implementing and evaluating the physical matter of a design. As a PhD researcher at the BLOCK Research Group at ETH Zurich, Ursula Frick joined the NCCR Digital Fabrication in September 2014.
