He is particularly interested to speculate about these relationships in the near future. He uses design as a vehicle to visualize potential implications and scenarios. He holds an M.A. in Design Interactions (under Anthony Dunne) from the Royal College of Art London, a Diploma in Information & Media from the HfG Schwäbisch Gmünd and is Alumnus of the MIT Senseable City Lab. Benedikt is a professor of Interaction Design at his alma mater HfG Schwäbisch Gmünd and is concurrently associate Director of Design at moovel Lab (subsidiary Daimler AG) where his work deals with future mobility concepts and mobility related data. He is co-author of 'Generative Gestaltung', which is considered being one of the standard books in the field of computational design, with translations to English (Princeton Architectural Press), French (Editions Pyramid) and Japanese (BNN).
