Wes Mcgee is an Assistant Professor in Architecture and the Director of the FABLab at the University of Michigan Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning. His research and teaching agenda is focused on developing new connections between design, engineering, materials, and process as they relate to the built environment through the creation of customized software and fabrication protocols. Seamlessly integrating process constraints with design intent, the work spans multiple realms, including algorithmic design, computational feedback of material properties, and secondary and tertiary automation processes that integrate robotics with bespoken machines of architectural production. He is also a founding partner and senior designer in the studio Matter Design. In 2013 Matter Design was awarded the Architectural League Prize for Young Architects & Designers.
