Roland Snooks is a partner of the experimental research collaborative Kokkugia, and director of the architecture practice Studio Roland Snooks. Roland’s architectural design research is focused on behavioral processes of formation that draw from the logic of swarm intelligence and operate through multi-agent algorithms. In addition to his work with algorithmic design Roland directs the Architectural Robotics Lab at RMIT University. He holds a masters in advanced architectural design from Columbia University where he studied on a Fulbright scholarship after graduating from RMIT University (B.Arch). Roland is currently a lecturer in architecture at RMIT University and holds a visiting position at the University of Pennsylvania, having previously directed design studios and seminars at the Pratt Institute, SCI-Arc, UCLA, and USC.
