Smart Building Envelopes

The research field “Smart Building Envelopes” deals with alternative solutions for new constructions, renovation, and densification, based on the premises resilience, efficiency, comfort, and usability. Traditional Alpine construction was marked by resource scarcity, local building materials, and low energy supply. As a result, construction principles are newly interpreted as modern

Simulation of Settlement Systems

Within the research field “Simulation of Settlement Systems”, innovative (spatial) simulation models and decision-making tools for resource-efficient densification solutions in sustainable settlement systems are developed with geoinformation methods. In addition, densification typologies are created, which are integrated into spatial simulation models in order to optimize area use whilst taking the residential environment into account.
