Responsive Architecture Design is premised on the notion that every building or landscape component can be equipped with computational power. Responsive Architecture Design research is supported by the School’s RAD-UM lab, which provides resources and expertise for project-based research on the spatial ramifications of embedded technology and ubiquitous computing. Projects at RAD-UM are set up for multi-disciplinary collaboration and for partnerships with industry.

This field is also supported by the MS Arch track in Digital Fabrication and Technology, as well as a Master of Data Science architectural track focused on Smart Cities
