Philippe Morel is an architect, theorist and entrepreneur, co-founder of EZCT Architecture & Design Research (2000) and initiator and founding CEO of the large-scale 3D-printing corporation XtreeE (2015). He currently teaches as an Associate Professor at the École nationale supérieure d'architecture Paris-Malaquais, where he headed the Digital Knowledge department (co-founded with Pr. Girard), and at UCL Bartlett where he held a Visiting Professorship position. Before teaching at ENSA Paris-Malaquais and the Bartlett, he was a seminar and studio Professor at the Berlage Institute in Rotterdam, and a history and theory seminar and AADRL tutor at the Architectural Association in London. In 2017, he co-edited the book "Computational politics and architecture: From Digital Philosophy to the End of Work" (Editions ENSA Paris-Malaquais). In February 2007, he curated the exhibition "Architecture Beyond Forms: The Computational Turn" at the Maison de l’architecture et de la ville PACA in Marseille. Explicitly departing from Eisenman PhD’s dissertation from 1963 – "The Formal Basis of Modern Architecture" –, the exhibition addressed both historically and theoretically the current linguistic and computational turns in architectural design. Philippe Morel has published more than 35 essays, lectured in many universities around the world (Harvard GSD, ETH Zurich, Columbia GSAPP, Princeton, Pratt Institute, MIT, TU Delft, EHESS, ENS Lyon, TU Wien, IaaC, Centre Pompidou, etc.) and presented his work in numerous exhibitions (MNAM – Centre Pompidou; Mori Art Museum, Tokyo; Museum of Art & Design, New York). His work and the one of his office are part of private and public collections, including FRAC Centre and Centre Pompidou permanent collections.
