Esri R&D Center Zurich
Pascal Mueller is the Director of the Esri R&D Center Zurich, where novel tools for 3D GIS and urban design are developed.
Its predecessor, the start-up company Procedural, was co-founded by Pascal in 2007 and successfully sold to Esri in 2011. Previously, in his PhD at ETH Zurich, he pioneered novel methods for the procedural modeling of cities and buildings which are now the core of Esri’s CityEngine and part of ArcGIS Pro. Besides computer graphics, his main interests are urban planning, architecture, generative design, and visual effects production.
Pascal has published more than 50 scientific papers including SIGGRAPH and has held numerous invited talks at conferences, universities and companies all over the world. His body of artistic work includes short movies, music videos, over 50 live visuals performances, and interactive museum installations including Ars Electronica.
