Tom Svilans is an architectural designer, artist, and creative technologist. His interests lie at the intersection of performative technology, mythology, and the fabricated artefact. His approach to architecture as a constructed / invented environment emphasizes narrative, place, and baroque tendencies of ornament and spectacle. He is Technical Director at ScanLAB Projects – a London-based practice which specializes in high-resolution terrestrial LiDAR scanning – where he develops workflows, integrates technologies, teaches workshops, and creates tools for the processing, manipulation, and visualization of massive point-cloud datasets. Tom is also a Teaching Fellow at the Bartlett School of Architecture. In this capacity, he teaches courses in robotics, fabricates bespoke components, and develops new hardware and software tools to interface with the extensive digital manufacturing arsenal at the Bartlett Manufacturing and Design Exchange (Bmade).
