Pixelkompressor is a research and design studio founded by Ralf Bliem in Berlin early 2013.

Its operating field lies somewhere inbetween computational architecture, modular design and additive or digital manufacturing in many ways.

Since 2017 based in Vienna, Pixelkompressor and the Biotop – Collective share their paths with their mission to interconnect science and design.

As a co-founder of Biotop, Ralf Bliem was granted a EFRE fund in late 2018 to encourage a modular lab design, developed at the intersection point between science and architecture.
