The Design Computation Research Lab (DC-Lab) plays a vital role to  transform our future sustainable built environment towards automated solutions and to advance the concept of Smart Buildings. The main aim of the DC-Lab is to investigate use of innovative and smart platform technologies integrated with computational design approaches. Within this context, the DC-Lab  will benchmark different configurations and behaviors of the Smart Building and is evaluated via virtual/physical prototyping.
Main Research Thrusts:
The DC-Lab research activities revolves around Six Research thrusts proposed as change drivers including:
  1. Tectonic Structures.
  2. Smart Materials.
  3. Building Information Modeling (BIM).
  4. Simulation.
  5. Sustainable Buildings.
  6. Design Computation.
