Dr. Sina Mostafavi is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Architecture and 3D Design in the School of Arts and Humanities at the University of Huddersfield. As an experienced researcher, practicing architect, and educator with computational design and architectural robotics expertise, Mostafavi’s research focuses on the innovative application of emerging materials and technologies for integrated design and circular production. He holds a doctoral degree from TU Delft, where he has been a senior researcher and the manager at the robotic building lab of Hyperbody Research Group.

Prior to moving to the UK, he has led several research projects at TU Delft Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment in the Netherlands and Dessau Institute of Architecture at Bauhaus in Germany. As a practicing architect, he has been the founder of SETUParchitecture, an award-winning studio aiming to adapt digital design-to-production technologies to geo-cultural specificities. Mostafavi’s projects are featured at international exhibitions, such as the V2 gallery Rotterdam, Het Nieuw Instituut, Dutch Design Week, and Print the World Exposition in Centre Pompidou Paris. Lectured and published internationally, he has presented his work in institutions such as ETH Zurich, AA-London, UT-Sydney, TU-Vienna, Paris Malaquais, KNAW-Amsterdam, Rob|Arch. Mostafavi is the recipient of awards such as 2A awards in IAAC for Softstone Building, Architizer A+ Award 2020, and the Digital Futures Emerging Scholar Award 2021.
He has led and taught more than 60 design studios and seminars and has supervised more than 50 graduate and post-graduate students with research-oriented architectural design projects. In DIA, he has been the director of DARS.hub [Design, Architectural Robotics & Systems], delivering interdisciplinary projects such as Bioplastic Robotic-3D-Printing and Adaptive City Car sponsored by AUDI. He has been a member of the scientific committees of various journals and conferences such as eCAADe, ACADIA and CAAD Futures, and 3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing, and he is currently an elected member of the Board of Directors in ACADIA and an Editorial Board member in IAJC Journal.
