Joshua M. Taron is an Associate Professor of architecture at the University of Calgary Faculty of Environmental Design where he is co-director of the Laboratory for Integrative Design (LID). His current research focuses on new efficiencies and aesthetic effects made possible through digitally prefabricated architecture. This work is done in partnership with a variety of disciplines such as computer science, structural engineering and city planning. The work has been published internationally and orients itself toward finding new ways of revitalizing and sustaining the already-built environment.
Taron is also Principal of Synthetiques, an award-winning research+design+build outfit focusing on the hybrid ecologies afforded through the interface of computational and physical economies across multiple scales.
