Expertise

  • Research on Transformable Structures within the framework of the AE-Lab (Research Lab for Architectural Engineering). Specific field of expertise is the design and analysis of transformable structures (deployable structures and kit-of-parts systems) for architectural engineering applications. This includes topics such as 4D Design, sustainable development, adaptable building, transitional shelters for disaster relief, transformable façades http://www.vub.ac.be/ARCH/onderzoek.php?display=ae-lab
  • Research on Parametric Design of Structures (subtopic of Computer Aided Design). Specific field of expertise is the digital modelling of transformable structures to study the mutual relationship between their geometry, kinematic behaviour and structural response
  • Architectural design
