SPP - What we do / who we are


Smart Parameters Platform

The Smart Parameters Platform has been instigated to further UNStudio’s approach of architecture as relational. This relational approach involves the thorough integration of what we commonly conceive as separate systems pertaining to the positioning, construction, circulation, cladding, and programming of a building. As a result of this holistic understanding the design and building processes also must be seen as interwoven and connected.

The Smart Parameters Platform manages, maintains and develops the computational tools and processes involved in an integral design and construction process. The knowledge dealt with in the SPP is subject to rapid modification, which gives this Platform a young and energetic character.

Computational design is thus not limited to form-finding for UNStudio, but explicitly encompasses all the parameters involved in the design and building processes of architecture.
