Digital Developments in Architecture and Prototyping - d2AP Lab 

The research laboratory for Digital Developments in Architecture and Prototyping – d2AP aims to explore digital strategies in the design and construction of complex, non-standard, three-dimensional architectural systems towards sustainable growth. Specifically, it focuses on the development of integrative computational design and fabrication mechanisms introduced in research towards exploration and multi-objective analysis of architectural design and construction systems according to sustainability criteria.   

Directions of investigation include:

  • Computational design and digital fabrication
  • Robots in sustainable construction
  • Additive manufacturing 
  • Architectural multi-objective analysis 
  • Pedestrian movement behavior modeling and circulation design
  • Adaptation and interaction in architectural systems 
  • Theory of design process and the use of computers
