Combining digital work flow and nature’s principles with future-thinking, German born and Sydney-based architect Chris Bosse is one of the country’s leading architecture and digital-fabrication authorities.

Director of LAVA, Adjunct Professor at UTS, and a key designer of the Beijing Watercube, Bosse is a recipient of the Award for Emerging Architecture (Royal Institute of British Architects) and Perspective’s 40 Under 40 for Asia’s rising design stars. Passionate about sustainability and re-imagining existing buildings to become more environmentally friendly, Bosse and his team at LAVA design sustainable master plans, eco-office and apartment towers, stadiums, and installations, and have won the UN-Zeroprize for ‘reskinning’ an ageing icon tower.
