Fascinated by the unfulfilled potential climatic design has to drive a new architectural design paradigm, the studio, led by Jonathan Natanian, thinks beyond 'green building' towards a fully integrated adaptive approach; one in which the patterns of occupancy, the user interfaces, passive and hybrid strategies and the urban realm come together and drive a generative architectural language.


Jonathan acquired both his architectural degree and practical experience in Israel before earning his master’s degree at the AA in London. Since 2018 Jonathan works as a research associate at TUM, where he is currently pursuing his PhD under a full DAAD scholarship. Being both an experienced architect and an environmental design researcher, Jonathan has dedicated the last few years of his career to exploring the intersection between both disciplines mostly through research and teaching. In his doctoral research he strives to integrate architecture and environmental engineering by developing a digital workflow to help planners reliably balance urban form, energy balance and environmental quality.
