For a number of years, Chris Bosse has based his work on the computerised study of organic structures and resulting spatial conceptions. His research lies in the exploration of unusual structures pushing the boundaries of the traditional understanding of structure and architecture by means of digital and experimental formfinding.
Born in 1971 in Stuttgart, Chris Bosse was educated in Germany and Switzerland and worked in several European architecture firms. His postgraduate degree at the University of Stuttgart dealt with the implementation of virtual worlds into architecture.
With Mad Oreyzi he developed the Bubble-Highrise for Berlin in 2002.
He now is an associate with PTW architects in Sydney, where he was a key member of the design team developing the Watercube in Beijing. That project, called the Watercube, received the Atmosphere Award at the 9th Venice Biennale and will be completed at the end of 2007.
The MOËT Marquee in Melbourne explored a the concept of freeform interior based on the physics of champagne bubbles and minimal surfaces. It was selected as the overall winner of the 2006 IDEA awards.
PTW is one of the largest Australian architecture firms with offices in Beijing, Shanghai, Ho Chi Minh City and Dubai. The work is widely published and Chris guest-lectures at various universities internationally. The current exhibition "Out from down under" in San Francisco, California, shows an overview of his and PTWs work.
