en Limba Engleză Hardback – 10 May 2022
This book collects ground-breaking works on the actual and potential impact of big data and data-integrated design for resilient urban environments, including human- and ecology-centred perspectives. Comprehending and designing for urban social, demographic and environmental change is a complex task. Big data, data structuring, data analysis (i.e. AI and ML) and data-integrated design can play a significant role in advancing approaches to this task. The themes presented in this book include urban adaptation, urban morphology, urban mobility, urban ecosystems, urban climate, urban ecology and agriculture. Given the compound nature of complex sustainability problems, most chapters address the correlation between several of these themes. The book addresses practitioners, researchers and graduate students concerned with the rapidly increasing role of data in developing urban environments.

Notă biografică

Ata Chokhachian
He is a research scientist, educator, and advisor in the domains of building technology and urban climate, developing and employing computational decision-making workflows and tools for architects and urban planners. Since 2015, he has been appointed as a research associate at the chair of Building Technology and Climate Responsive Design, as well as chair for Architecture Informatics at the Technical University of Munich. In 2022, he defended with success his Ph.D. dissertation in developing experimental and simulation-based tools to quantify outdoor thermal comfort conditions in urban environments. In the summer of 2019, he was appointed as a visiting research fellow at the Sustainable Design Lab at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. In January 2020, he co-founded Climateflux, a company offering platforms for data-driven and computational workflows for acquiring climatic knowledge.


Michael U. Hensel
He is an architect and partner in the architectural practices OCEAN net and OCEAN Architecture |Environment. He taught at the Architectural Association School of Architecture in London from 1993 to 2009. From 2011 to 2018 he was director of the Research Centre for Architecture and Tectonics at the Oslo School of Architecture and Design. Since 2018 he is professor at the Faculty of Architecture and Planning at Vienna University of Technology and heads the research department for Digital Architecture and Planning.


Katia Perini
She is assistant professor at the Architecture and Design Department, Polytechnic School of the University of Genoa (Italy). Main research interests: effects and performances of nature based solutions in the field of environmental and economic sustainability in (of) urban areas and building/urban design. Katia Perini obtained the EU PhD label in 2012 at the University of Genoa. She was visiting student at the Delft University of Technology and visiting scholar at Columbia University (NY, USA, Fulbright grant) and at the Technische Universität München (TUM, DAAD award).
