This blog ties together the different strands of my work, such as digital design research, architectural practice, urbanism, art, teaching, and occasional writing to form one more or less comprehensive digital archive, that allows for sorting, browsing and cross-referencing. No more, no less. Feedback, inquiries, conversations, and comments are welcome!

Robert R. Neumayr Beelitz Univ.Lekt. Arch. Dipl.-Ing. Dr. tech. March. AA Dist. (AT, *1972) is an architect, researcher, and educator.

Robert also holds a doctoral degree (Dr. techn.) from the University of Applied Arts in Vienna.

Since 2000 Robert has been researching contemporary digital design practice, focusing on responsive architecture, parametric urbanism, algorithmic design, evolutionary design strategies, and machine learning and AI in architecture, focusing on the simulation, evaluation and improvement of the built environment’s social performativity. His research and projects have been published and exhibited internationally, most notably at Latent Utopias (Graz, 2002) and the Beijing Biennal (Beijing, 2004), and been awarded numerous prizes, among them the Bronze Medal at the Miami Bienal 2003. He has been shortlisted for the German Architektur Internet Preis twice and received one honorable mention.

Robert has been teaching in Austria and internationally, among others working as design studio instructor at the Department for Construction at the TU Vienna, as Assistant Professor with Patrik Schumacher at the Department for Experimental Architecture at the University of Innsbruck, as Assistant Professor with Zaha Hadid in her design studio at the IoA at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna and as Assistant Professor with Kazuyo Sejima. He was teaching the Post Professional Design Studio at the Stuart Weitzman Schools of Design’s AAD program at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. He is currently a lecturer at the Institute of Structure and Design ( at the University of Innsbruck.

Robert was a Senior Researcher at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna, coordinating a research group on Agent Based Parametric Semiology funded by a €350.000 PEEK research grant awarded by the Austrian FWF.

After working with different architectural practices in Vienna and London, amongst others with Zaha Hadid Architects and ocean_UK, he co-founded HUP architects in Vienna in 2020.

Robert’s website operates as a design and research platform aiming to bring together academia, design research and professional practice.

Robert R. Neumayr is member of the Chamber of Austrian Architects and Civil Engineers, licensed to practice as an architect in Austria and within the EEC and Switzerland.
