Architectural informatics

Architectural informatics focuses on the following aspects of the potential of “architecture as an information medium”, which is greatly influenced by the development and penetration of digital information technology in today’s society

Computational design: optimization and value creation through simulation and autonomous generation with vast computational power.
Digital construction: material production methods and collaborative relationships between humans and machines through automatic control technology and data linkage
Common Ground Information: Open and interactive sharing of environmental information based on digital models
Cyber-physical systems: adaptive environments through sensing and interaction with social dynamics and human behavior
Based on this perspective, we research innovative designs of Architecture and urban space designs and their implementation methods through practical projects.
