The Digital Design Unit Lab | DDU

Fred and Ginger – the two UR10s at DDU

COLLABORATIVE DESIGN: DDU researches forms of collaboration between architects and robots both in the design studio and on the construction site.

COMBINATORIAL DESIGN: Using computational design tools and digital fabrication DDU revisits modular design in architecture with the promise of reusable and affordable buildings.

DESIGN THROUGH GAMING: DDU explores how games can be used as design environments where architectural decisions are made collectively by architects, players and algorithms.

FORMWORK DESIGN: DDU’s work on rotoformed concrete pushes forward design processes for soft and reusable formwork with the aim to reduce material consumption in construction.

IMMERSIVE DESIGN: At DDU we look at the new types of interactions that emerge in Augmented and Virtual Reality and how they are redefining architectural design.

DIGITAL RECONSTRUCTION: DDU is reconstructing historic buildings for exhibitions and research projects.
