• Parametric Design & Computation
The application of various parametric design techniques including digital modeling, non-linear thinking, and generative design. Building is constructed as an information model containing a large quantity of parameters that can be computed in various design phases.

• Digital Fabrication
The integration of digital fabrication technologies including laser cutting, 3D printing, CNC milling, and Robot into the parametric design pipeline. Prototyping by various computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) software.

• Performance Driven Design & Simulation
The simulation and analysis of building performance in the relation to the environmental, structural, and social parameters. Topics include wayfinding, crowd behavior, agent-based system, solar, thermal, and energy analysis, form validation, genetic evolution based form seeking and design optimization methods.
