We are glad to announce the lecture and the workshop Morphogenetic Fluid Dynamics which is organized by Digital Design Center and will be held at the Department for Architecture and Urbanism, Faculty of Technical Sciences, University of Novi Sad on 19-20.2.2018. The lecturer is Angelos Chronis, the PhD candidate (Mari-Curie Fellow) at the Institute of Advanced Architecture of Catalonia in Barcelona, as a member of the Innochain network. He teaches at IaaC and at the Bartlett School of Architecture of University College London. Previously he has been working as an Associate for the Applied Research + Development group at Foster + Partners.
He holds a diploma of Architecture from the University of Patras, Greece and an MSc in Adaptive Architecture & Computation from the Bartlett School of Graduate Studies, UCL, with distinction. He is a registered Architect both in Greece and in the UK.
His main research interest lies in the integration of simulation, optimization and performance drive in the design and fabrication process with a deeper expertise in computational fluid dynamics (CFD) but he has worked across many fields including virtual & augmented reality, interactive installations, 3D scanning, spatial analysis and parametric design.
He is also actively involved in scientific committees as an author, reviewer and organizer as well as participating in lectures, workshops and architecture crits internationally.
The Morphogenetic Fluid Dynamics workshop aims to introduce a performance‐driven design methodology, through exploring the ideas of shape optimization and iterative simulation feedback.
The workshop will look into the morphogenetic potential of fluids, based on the use of Computational Fluid Dynamics simulations and Computational Design processes. Working with a real world scenario and objective and through analyzing the context and data of the given site, participants will be asked to use introductory level parametric geometry and simulation tools to explore the effects of their design on the airflow and ventilation of the building.
