Chair for Information Architecture, ETH, and Design Informatics, Delft University of Technology.
Performative Architecture. Design Models, Methods and Tools.
Bige Tun莽er is an assistant professor at the Design Informatics chair, Faculty of Architecture, Delft University of Technology. She has a B.Sc. in Architecture from METU, Turkey, an M.Sc. in Computational Design from Carnegie Mellon University, USA, and a Ph.D. from Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands. Previously, she has worked at the Chair for Architecture and CAAD, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, Switzerland. Her research interests include information and knowledge modeling and visualization, collaborative design, e-learning, and design exploration and generative design. She has been principal investigator and participant of a number of funded research projects. Her research has been widely published in books, journals and conference proceedings. She regularly leads scientific workshops and gives lectures internationally. She is a member of scientific committees of various journals and conferences. She has organized two international peer-reviewed conferences and chaired one of these. She is the Ph.D. research coordinator of the Department of Building Technology. She has conceived and taught numerous M.Sc. and B.Sc. courses since 1996. Currently, she teaches digital design studios to B.Sc. and M.Sc. students, and digital fabrication and design theory to M.Sc. students. She has organized and participated in three interdisciplinary virtual design studios, for one of which she was granted an AIA Education Honor Award in 2008. She is advisor to a number of Ph.D. and M.Sc. projects.
Bige Tuncer’s lecture:
This presentation was an overview of Bige Tuncer last work in the Department of Building Technology at TU Delf. For Bige Tuncer’s research group, Performative Architecture starts from the following premisse: “Developments of architecture and building design are driven by attempts to achieve step changes in performance.” In order to achive those step changes they are used innovate computational tools, techniques and methods in the design, manufacturing and contruction process. In the presented projects, three were the main focuses: Information, Generative and Parametric Design Models, Methods and Tools.
