Research Associate

Vacancy number 4743BR
Salary £31,656 - £37,768 per annum (Grade 6) (Please note this post will not be appointed above £31,656 per annum (spine point 30)
Length of Contract This post is full-time (35 hours per week) and is fixed term for 36 months from 1 September 2016.
Closing date 24 June 2016

The Welsh School of Architecture, Cardiff University has received a Leverhulme Trust Research Project Grant for a proposal titled “Enhancing the representation of architectural space in 3D modelling environments.” This project will start 1 September 2016 with a duration of 36 months. The project is led by Dr. Wassim Jabi as principal investigator in collaboration with Prof. Robert Aish (Bartlett, UCL) and Dr. Simon Lannon. The aim of this research is to use a technique called non-manifold topology (NMT) to significantly influence architectural computing and architectural practice and to ultimately improve the experience of people who use buildings. This research will challenge the current Building Information Modelling (BIM) orthodoxy through the development of a more appropriate representation of architectural space so that it is available both for immediate use in conceptual design and as a partner technology in a future unified computational design system. This new modelling approach will be supported by an expanded set of tools that allow architects to create models that are consistent, flexible, and extensible while maintaining design creativity and desired spatial complexity. In this project, the team will develop a conceptual framework and schema for the hierarchical and cellular spatial representation of buildings through NMT and a set of algorithms and tools that test the potential of this approach. They will conduct four use case scenarios in the areas of: Energy Analysis, Structural Analysis, Spatial Reasoning, and Fabrication Planning.
