PLP Architecture launches UCL collaboration

PLP Architecture has announced a collaboration with the University College London (UCL Energy Institute) and Bentley Systems to sponsor the development of new software tools for parametric design that focus on energy and the environment. PLP Architecture is widely acknowledged in the profession as being on the cutting edge of parametric technology.

Lars Hesselgren, head of technology and advanced geometry at PLP, said: "PLP Research is focused on providing better tools for architects and engineers to predict behaviour of complex systems, such as the built environment. The control of geometric form has been the focus of current parametric design systems. By teaming up with UCL Energy Institute and Bentley Systems, PLP aims to extend that ease of control into the energy space-time domain, where manipulating performance is as important as manipulating form. By coupling geometric form and performance very tightly, optimisation and exploration will be orders of magnitude faster and easier. As part of this collaboration, an Engineering Doctorate researcher will be embedded in the studios of PLP to work closely with design teams while developing such innovative tools and techniques."
