This course is taught by Stephane Marti a passionate Swiss-Australian architect who has worked for the past 5 years in an award winning Sydney based architecture firm. Stephane has successfully implemented Rhino 3d as part of the office standard design tools. He has invaluable expertise in the development of complex architectural structures as well as having worked on the design of smaller objects such as jewellery. Stephane is launching his own design studio and is currently in the process of developing new products. Stephane is particularly fascinated by the physics of light and its applications in lighting design.
