3F Studio


Oliver Tessin is a founder of 3F Studio and responsible for its Computational Design.

His work investigates computational and nature’s design processes to create concepts that fuse form and function – hence 3F – and to develop informed design methods that explore the potentials of high resolution through additive manufacturing for more performance in architecture and design.

Before 3F he founded Studio Oliver Tessin, a research-oriented practice, in which he focuses on complex spatial structural concepts for design and art projects.

Oliver Tessin completed his studies in architecture with a focus on Computational Design with High Distinction at the SAS Saarland, Tongji Shanghai and TU Munich in 2015. He worked as an architect, lecturer and research assistant for various architectural practices and academic institutions, amongst others: Buro Ole Scheren, Allmann Sattler Wappner, research project BOWOOSS (Bionic Optimized Wood Shells with Sustainability) and TU Munich.

From Research to Reality: Recyclable, 3D Printed Facade

For their PhD research project, Mortiz Mungenast and Oliver Tessin searched for a way to use 3D printing technology to create an intelligent architectural product, a 3D printed façade. They were driven to create not only a product, but also a fully digitized design-to-production process, eliminating the risks of mistranslation and inefficiencies which occur traditionally, […]
