We are happy to share the video of our Excellence Cluster proposal on “Integrative Computational Design and Construction for Architecture (IntCDC)”, which is competing in the final round of the German Excellence Strategy. The aim of the Excellence Strategy is to strengthen Germany’s position as an outstanding place for research in the long term and further improve its international competitiveness.

The vision of this Cluster of Excellence is to harness the full potential of digital technologies to rethink design and construction based on integration and interdisciplinarity, with the goal to enable game-changing innovation in the building sector. The cluster’s 22 principal investigators represent the breadth of scientific excellence across seven faculties of the University of Stuttgart and the Max Plank Institute for Intelligent Systems. The IntCDC proposal is led by Prof. Achim Menges from the Institute of Computational Design and Construction.
