The Professorship Experimental and Digital Design and Construction encompasses three primary research areas: the theoretical and practical development of generative digital design processes, digital construction processes, and mobile as well as interactive processes between humans and machines. These three topics are investigated in experimental setups using computational tools and integrated into digital design and construction techniques for performative material and building systems. In the process, digital structural change is to be developed with the goal of intelligent, flexible and highly networked production. For all three topics, our department has established a close-knit collaborative research network at the University and the Academy of Fine Arts in Kassel, which interdisciplinarily connects the departments of architectural, urban, and landscape planning with materials science, engineering, and robotics.
