Dear friends and colleagues,
Performance-oriented Design is a research area of the OCEAN Design Research Association that is directed by Prof. Dr. Michael U. Hensel and Defne Sunguroğlu Hensel. This research area is dedicated to the formulation of an inclusive theoretical and mehodological framework for design based on the interaction between multiple domains of agency.
Performance-oriented Architecture, a subset of Performance-oriented Design, focuses on the formulation of an integrative theoretical and methodological framework for architectural design and sustainability. This involves key concepts such as non-discrete and non-anthropocentric architectures. The latter focuses on architecture and ecology relations and multiple species integration in architecture to help sustain ecosystems and biodiversity.
