The ARD team applies state-of-the-art technological innovation to complex design challenges, placing the latest advances from the laboratory in the hands of architects and engineers. They bring expertise in performance analysis, optimisation, fabrication, interaction design and data visualisation. 

Their work includes projecting computer analysis on to physical models, to facilitate design decisions; and by exploring ‘augmented reality’, they have introduced three-dimensional scanning, artificial intelligence and human recognition to bring the intuitive interactions of the real world into a digital environment.
