Architecture and Engineering

Architecture and Engineering is a research group belonging to the Division of Architectural Theory and Methods. The group's research questions are based on how spaces and architectural expressions interact with materials and load-bearing structures. Four basic elements characterize 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

The group is active within the Chalmers Areas of Advance, in particular within the Building Futures
