Civil Engineers’ Club

Phil Langley leads the Creative Technologies Team at Bryden Wood, which brings together different strands of BIM, computational design and digital technology. His focus is ‘Algorithmic Design Automation’ - making the design process not just faster, but smarter.

How can we – as designers and engineers – be more directly involved in making our own digital tools? And how might our own roles - as well the built environment itself – be changed through different relationships with digital technology?

Phil Langley

Phil Langley is an architect and computational designer, based in London and leads the ‘Creative Technologies' team at Bryden Wood.

Bryden Wood are industry leaders in Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA) and the Creative Technologies team are specialists in algorithmic design. We have developed automated design workflows to accelerate the delivery of social and economic infrastructure by combining DfMA approaches and cutting-edge digital technologies.

Our approach is about making the process not only faster, but also smarter – it is an intelligent automated process that allows us to iterate faster and gain greater, data-driven insights, to enable evidence-based decision making.

We bring together different strands of BIM and computational design including algorithmic design + simulation, connected tech, mixed reality environments and big data analytics. We develop software, technology and tools that can be used not only by designers but our clients as well.
