Short Biography
As an architect, artist, researcher and lecturer, Stanislav Roudavski’s focus is on technologically sustained places. His current practice-based research integrates organizational techniques of architecture, unpredictability and richness of performative situations, creative capacities of computing, visual languages of the moving-image arts, dramaturgy and spatial narrative.

Stanislav earned his combined qualification of Master of Architecture / Master of Fine Arts from the Academy of Arts in St. Petersburg where his diploma project earned highest honours and was selected for an international exhibition of best final-year projects. He holds a Master of Science in Computer-Aided Architectural Design from the University of Strathclyde (UK) and a Doctorate from the University of Cambridge (UK).

Stanislav has several years of architectural-design experience in several European countries where he has worked on urban planning, housing, office and retail buildings, churches, museums and exhibitions. He has taught and worked on research projects at the University of Cambridge, MIT and the University of Melbourne. The outcomes of his research have been disseminated through a number of publications across several fields and his projects have been exhibited at numerous international events.

Stanislav's current professional focus areas include procedural designing of complex and adaptive architectural structures; designing of hybrid media- or computer-sustained environments; performance studies and practice; action- and practice-based research methodologies; and participatory, distributed creativity.
