Michal Bednar is an architect with 6 years professional practice. Graduated at CTU in
Prague. As a member of the academic studio FLO(W) he is specialized in digitally-driven
adaptive architecture. During his practice he focuses on computational design with the
use of parametric and scripting software such as Grasshopper for Rhino3d, Processing
or Digital Project.
He has work experience as an intern at Laboratory for Visionary Architecture (Stuttgart) or
design architect at Czech based studio Len+k architekti s.r.o. In AECOM he was a mem-
ber of a team specialized in design of sports buildings, such as stadiums and arenas. He
has been involved in design teams to establish initial design concepts, design develop-
ment and production of tender information. Multi-disciplinary teamwork and extensive use
of 3D and parametric computer tools to facilitate the design process are key aspects of
his approach to design.
