Hua Hao


Hua Hao was a researcher at the CAAD Chair of ETH between October 2009 and January 2014.

He gradated from Southeast University, Nanjing, China in 2006 and later finished his master program there. He explores design computing as a tool and a methodology.

Hua Hao joined the CAAD Chair since October 2009 after gradated from Southeast University, China. He specializes in computational design, modeling the topology and the form of architecture.
