The group’s research questions are based on how spaces and architectural expressions interact with materials and load-bearing structures.

Four basic elements characterise the working method of the group:

  • Contextual anchoring in contemporary and historically based references
  • Mathematical modelling, simulation and optimization
  • Exploratory experiments with an artistic approach
  • Digital representations and prototypes for communication in the different stages of the design process

The group’s research aims at:

  • investigating the potential of new materials and new production methods in architecture and engineering through mathematical modelling and simulation
  • supporting architectural and engineering communication in an iterative design process through the development of digital representations and physical prototypes
