Computational Design Lead
Prior to joining VIATechnik, Mac Little graduated from the University of Houston with a B. Arch was leveraging his knowledge at firms like Grimshaw, EvolveLAB, Page/Architects and Prescient where he was at the forefront of melding the architecture process with economic analysis and data collection utilizing cutting edge design tools with computational methods. While at Page, he was focused on adapting his knowledge of parametric design and evaluation to evolve the process of pre-design and building programming. Through technology improvements, more robust data collection capabilities, and highly developed in-house applications of computational design, he developed a method for rapid prototyping, building optimization, and simulation testing. This process places emphasis on front loading key data collected in the pre-design and programming stages, while building a data driven framework for evaluation and production.
