Mona Ghandi, The Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia

THE INSTITUTE FOR ADVANCED ARCHITECTURE OF CATALONIA (IAAC) IS A CENTER FOR RESEARCH, EDUCATION, PRODUCTION, AND OUTREACH, WITH THE MISSION OF ENVISIONING THE FUTURE HABITAT OF OUR SOCIETY AND BUILDING IT IN THE PRESENT.

Mona Ghandi's research will explore how buildings that continuously attune their configurations in accordance with environmental and user use less energy, offer more occupant comfort, and feature better overall space efficiency than static buildings. Thus, the justification for adaptive kinetic structures is the economy of means, responsibility towards the natural environment, and the satisfaction of human needs and desires.
