Center for Augmented Computational Design in Architecture, Engineering and Construction
Design++ integrates AI, extended reality, and computational methods to achieve ambitious sustainability objectives in the AEC industry.
The Center for Augmented Computational Design in Architecture, Engineering and Construction, more commonly referred to as ‚Design++‘, is a research center at ETH Zurich which aims to develop digitally augmented design tools and computational processes that will enable experts to simultaneously increase construction productivity, improve the quality of the built environment and substantially reduce the ecological impact within Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC). Design++ integrates artificial intelligence (AI), with a focus on machine learning (ML) and extended reality (XR) for design and engineering as they hold great promise to revolutionize design processes in the AEC industry.
