Prof. Dr. Reinhard König


The professorship Computational Architecture develops methods and techniques for a more sophisticated, smarter digital design support. The general approach is to aggregate the designers' past experience using data analysis techniques and optimization algorithms to develop a smart design support system that can assist in finding the best compromises for complex design problems. The teaching introduces students to the latest future-oriented digital methods for simulation, analysis and automation from the fields of research and new industrial developments.

Dr. Reinhard König, Juniorprofessor für Computational Architecture, Dr. Sven Schneider, Vertretungsprofessor für Informatik in der Architektur sowie Dipl.-Ing. Martin Bielik, wissenschaftlicher Mitarbeiter der Professur Informatik in der Architektur haben für das Symposium on Simulation for Architecture and Urban Design (SimAUD) an der TU Delft gemeinsam den Beitrag »System Dynamics for Modeling Metabolism Mechanisms for Urban Planning« verfasst.

The Junior Professorship Computational Architecture started its activities on October 2015.

New Demonstration Video for Computational Urban Synthesis

Synthesizing Urban Fabric from Reinhard Koenig on Vimeo.

This video demonstrates the procedural methods for generating street networks, blocks, parcels ans buildings. They are provided as Grasshopper components and are developed by the Computational Plannig Group
