Taron is an Associate Professor of architecture at the University of Calgary’s Faculty of Environmental Design where he co-directs the Laboratory for Integrative Design (LID). His current research focuses on the way in which new modes of drawing, fabrication and construction can yield new performative effects in the built environment. This work is done in partnership with a variety of disciplines such as computer science, structural engineering and city planning. His work has been published internationally and orients itself toward finding new ways of revitalizing and sustaining the already-built environment. </p><p>Taron is also Principal of Synthetiques, an award-winning research+design+build outfit focusing on the hybrid ecologies afforded through the interface of computational and physical economies across multiple scales. He earned his undergraduate degree in architecture from the University of California, Berkeley and holds a Master of Architecture degree from the Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc).</p></div>http://www.zwc.ca/archive/2016/speakers/SpeakerPhotos/JoshuaTaron.jpg, http://www.zwc.ca/speakers/SpeakerPhotos/JoshuaTaron.jpgGP0|#e194e69b-4048-49cd-864b-a9635091c7e5;L0|#0e194e69b-4048-49cd-864b-a9635091c7e5|Josh Taron;GTSet|#c31bcefc-bba8-4775-8a91-82f54b19d6e1;GPP|#a957a61d-489a-4511-b008-3b138e771d18
