Our SFB project "Advanced Computational Design" has received extended funding for another four years of exciting, interdisciplinary research.

In the second funding period, we will deepen innovation in three main research areas: Design Methodology, Visual and Haptic Design Interaction and Form Finding, while extending interactions between the involved disciplines.

The members of the Center for Geometry and Computational Design welcomed faculty, students, company representatives and the public to the 8th Symposium on Geometry and Computational Design at TU Wien on November 3rd, 2023.

The collaborative project between SP5 and SP7 teams won the SIGGRAPH 2023 Emerging Technologies Best Project Award for “Action-Origami Inspired Haptic Devices for Virtual Reality” (https://doi.org/10.1145/3588037.3595393). The award was given by the Laval Virtual jury and the project has been invited to be presented at Laval Virtual 2024.

Our colleagues from SP3 are participating in the CITYX VENICE 2023 virtual exhibition, curated by Tom Kovac. This year Stefan Rutzinger and Kristina Schinegger are curating a virtual pavilion presenting research conducted in SP3 (Johannes Schlusche, Mathias Bank, Julian Höck, Viki Sandor), as well as joint research workshops with SP9 (Milena Stavric, Julian Jauck, Hana Vasatko, Felix Dokonal) and SP2 (Shervin Rasoulzadeh).

Eurographics has recognized Prof. Michael Wimmer with the 2023 Outstanding Technical Contributions Award for his pioneering work in advancing the field of computer graphics through his research in real-time rendering, physically based rendering, computer games, point-based graphics, procedural modeling, shape modeling, and computational fabrication.

Our colleagues presented novel 3D printing materials at MaterialDistrict 2023, Utrecht (NL).

Their "MyCera" material is also available in the MaterialDistrict database at https://materialdistrict.com/material/mycera/.


Our colleagues from TU Graz presented their work at the Erasmus BIP+ Workshop "Concrete Modularity" held at the University of Bratislava.


Our colleagues exhibited innovative furniture and objects produced using innovative digital methods developed within the FWF Special Research Area Project: ADVANCED COMPUTATIONAL DESIGN (https://acd.tuwien.ac.at) at WOHNEN & INTERIEUR 2023.

Our colleague Kiumars Sharifmoghaddam will give an invited keynote talk on
"When Escher meets Miura: A Geometric Exploration on Foldable and Transformable Structures",
at MoNGeometrija2023 (June 7-10 2023, https://mongeometrija2023.ftn.uns.ac.rs/).

TU Graz hosted a course on foldable design for architectures students:
"Fold Your Space: From Parametric Foldable Design to Digital Fabrication",
organized and presented by our colleagues Milena Stavric and Kiumars Sharifmoghaddam (21-25 November 2022).
