Tobias Klein works in the fields of architecture, art, design and interactive media installation. His work generates a syncretism of contemporary CAD/CAM technologies with site and culturally specific design narratives, intuitive non-linear design processes, and historical cultural references. Before joining City University Hong Kong in the role as interdisciplinary assistant professor in the School of Creative Media and the architectural department, he was employed at the Architectural Association (2008–14) and the Royal College of Art (2007–10), teaching students at the postgraduate level. The resulting works of his studio are exhibited internationally with examples being in the collection of the Antwerp Fashion Museum, the London Science Museum, the V&A, the Bellevue Arts Museum, Museum of Moscow and Vancouver and the Museum of Glass in Tacoma. He is lecturing and published internationally with most recent articles focusing on the translation from craftsmanship to digital manufacturing.
