Personal profile

Research interests

Professor Paul Loh is the Head of the Abedian School of Architecture and the lead coordinator of the Architecture Futures Laboratory at Bond University. Before this, he held a senior lectureship in Digital Architecture Design, Assistant Dean (IT) role and was co-director of the Advanced Digital Design and Fabrication (ADD+F) research hub at the Melbourne School of Design, University of Melbourne. Paul studied architecture at the University of Melbourne, the University of East London (UEL), and the Architectural Association (Design Research Lab). He taught at all these institutions and lectured at ETH (Zurich), Lund University (Sweden), and Tsinghua University (China). 

His research focuses on automation in construction, specifically on how robotic technology and advanced manufacturing can minimise and reduce design waste from current construction practices. He conducts research in flexible and reusable formwork for concrete casting and holds a patent technology that has been successfully commercialised through a start-up company.

In addition, his research also focuses on the cognitive engagement of digital technology in design practice and education. Through his architecture practice (LLDS), Paul has developed novel pre-fabricate and in-situ construction methods using scans, AR and VR technology. He has written extensively on digital craft in architecture design and technology-based teaching and learning environments.
