Abstract Building

Design Research

In collaboration with Curtin University, Australia and University of Technology Malaysia, IDA's research interests fall within three focused areas: (1) Smart hospitality (2) digital innovation to improve architectural practices and the built environment and (3) sustainable design in the tropics. Smart Hospitality that are focused on  integrating smart and ubiquitous technologies to improve human comfort, experience, wellness and visual perception of hotel spaces; Digital innovation that is centered at the intersection of the application of computational design and digital innovation management for improving and enhancing the design quality of the built and urban environment and sustainable design in the tropics focused on developing new knowledge, processes to address the challenges faced in creating buildings that are reactive intelligent and energy efficient.
