About The Speaker
Harlen Miller is a Senior Associate and practising Design Architect at UNStudio’s Amsterdam office. He joined UNS in 2012 after moving from Los Angeles, where his background was cultivated in architecture, film, narrative arts, and high-concept futurist thinking. The ability to analytically problem-solve through digital tooling has allowed him the unique opportunity to design bizarre and speculative typologies ranging from 300m towers, fashion, islands, Ferris wheels, boats, cars, jewelry, furniture, body modification and screen writing. Harlen is the Lead Coordinator of UNStudio’s Computational Knowledge Platform which develops digital strategies and customized tools for rationalizing complex geometry and building systems through computational, parametric and BIM modelling workflows. This role allows for the examination of technology and the subsequent impact on all related design professions as well as the physiological effects associated with its adoption. His digital research runs parallel to his involvement with Human Resource management, recruitment, and the training of ‘next-generation designers’ entering the workforce.
