RESEARCHER

Sydney School of Architecture, Design and Planning

Eduardo de Oliveira Barata is a registered architect in NSW, holds a lecturer position in the Faculty of Architecture Design and Planning at the University of Sydney and is the director of B A R A T A. Eduardo joined Urban Future Organization (UFO) in 2005, a collective of self-organised architecture studios sharing common design strategies in practice and academic discourse.

Since then, Eduardo has worked on award winning projects internationally and has continued his experimental design work since his move to Sydney with particular emphasis on embedding novel computer-aided fabrication techniques and material technologies to enrich design outcomes.

Eduardo’s research and practice background translates to the discussion of salient and current issues in architecture in his teaching, particularly relevant to the Digital Architecture Studio, where he believes invention comes about via the recombination and hybridization of existing modes of practice with new materials, technology, tools and techniques. His expertise is further valued in his contribution to several research grants.
