Gergely Péter Barna studied Japanese architecture on the Japanese Government Scholarship at the Kyoto Institute of Technology, Japan finishing his PhD in 2018. During his studies, he also worked as a carpenter on national monument restoration sites, such as Kiyomizu-temple, Kyoto, and Shoboji temple, Nara.
Since 2019 he has been a researcher at the KYOTO Design Lab with the theme ‘Dynamic Heritage’ executing pragmatic research projects that combine traditional carpentry methods with state-of-the-art archiving, computational, and machining technologies. His research focuses on how the human creation process can be reinterpreted in the age of digitalization.
In 2021 he received a Japan Wood Design Award for his project ‘Digitally aided reconstruction of the Warakuan Naguriita’.
He joined Gramazio Kohler Research in March 2024 as a guest researcher on the fellowship of Leadin House Asia to conduct his research project, ‘Augmented Craftmanship’ developing a hand-marking-based framework to connect craftsmen with digital manufacturing.
