Jelle Feringa is currently writing a PhD thesis, titled Design-by-Simulation, exploring the potential of simulation for architectural conception, at the HyperBody Research Group, TU Delft. He is a founding partner in EZCT Architecture & Design Research. The work of EZCT is part of the permanent collection of the Pompidou Center and the FRAC Orléans collection. Jelle’s thesis focusses on the close coupling of advanced simulation methods with evolutionary computing methods. Early research results have recently been exhibited at the transNatural (Amsterdam, 2010) and at “Alles, was Sie über Chemie Wissen müssen”, Club Transmediale exhibition (Berlin, 2011).

At the Hyperbody group, Jelle has been exploring novel CNC fabrication methods for the production of large volumetric elements, by means of hotwire cutting. Currently, Jelle is working on setting up a robotics lab to further continue this angle of research. For his research work, Jelle relies on OpenSource software. Working together with Thomas Paviot, Jelle has been driving the development of an open source CAD framework, PythonOCC a CAD/CAE/PLM development framework for the Python programming language.
