KYOTO Design Lab will hold the public lecture “Design Topology in the Digital Age” by Professor Christophe Girot, Chair of Landscape Architecture at the Architecture Department of the ETH Zürich. This is a lecture related to the “3D Scanning and Sound Recording,” a collaboration research between ETH Zürich and D-lab.

KYOTO Design Lab × ETH Zürich Public Lecture
Design Topology in the Digital Age

Time: 18:00-20:00, Thursday 2 November, 2017
Venue: Annex Hall, The Museum of Kyoto [Access]
Lecturer: Professor Christophe Girot [ETH Zürich]
Seating Capacity: 200
Admission free
Organized by KYOTO Design Lab, Kyoto Institute of Technology
Supported by the Embassy of Switzerland in Japan

A quiet revolution has taken place in the realm of digital design over the past decade, which has remained unnoticed. It is the introduction of geographically positioned digital point cloud models in analysis and design through the use of terrestrial laser scanners, and mobile and airborne Lidar. The scope and precision of such models are going to change the range of possible interactions between architecture and landscape in best design practice. There is also an uncanny aesthetic to the images produced in these digital models, which herald a heightened awareness to the built environment and how designers sense and play with it.

Professor Christophe Girot

Christophe Girot is Professor and Chair of Landscape Architecture at the Architecture Department of the ETH (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology) in Zürich since 2001.He has directed the Institute of Landscape Architecture there from 2005 to 2014.
Emphasis at the Chair has been given to large scale landscape design and modelling with particular attention to the topology of natural systems in cities. The recently founded LVML (landscape visualising and modelling laboratory) of the ETH funded since 2009 by the Swiss National Science Foundation, and co-directed with ETH Planning Professor Dr. Adrienne Grêt-Regamey has enabled significant advances in applied ecological design and point cloud modelling.
