The “Design and Computation Group” is an interdisciplinary research group which explores the boundaries between two formally distinct universes – design and computation. The group applies computational techniques to resolve design problems on a variety of scales, ranging from products to urban design and from architecture to regional planning.
The Design and Computation Group research aims to explore the potential of a computational approach to design and provide innovative strategies that will enable researchers and academics to construct a solid methodology to support their design research.
Various research projects funded by the FCT have been developed within the group, such as “Alberti Digital” and “Tecton 3D”, in collaboration with other research centres including the INESC-ID and the Centre for Social Studies at the University of Coimbra.
