Teaching

In our teaching activities we foreground practice-oriented forward-thinking research-by-design. In teaching we pursue themes that emerge in our practice and research activities. These include Embedded Architectures, Ecological Prototypes, Productive Landscapes, Designing for Demographic Change, Design + Build, etc. Methodologically we these develop themes through advanced design computation especially in areas of high complexity.
