Within the current global context of rapid change, integrated with the potentials of digital technologies, IAAC’s Master in Advanced Architecture (MAA) is committed to the generation of new ideas and applications for Urban Design, Self Sufficiency, Digital Manufacturing Techniques and Advanced Interaction.

In this context IAAC works with a multidisciplinary approach, facing the challenges posed by our environment and the future development of cities, architecture and buildings, through a virtuous combination of technology, biology, computational design, digital and robotic fabrication, pushing innovation beyond the boundaries of a more traditional architectural approach.


Heat is a form of energy that can be transferred between objects or systems due to a temperature difference. It is a manifestation of the internal energy of a substance or a system, resulting in the motion of its constituent particles. Heat can be transferred through three main mechanisms Phase 1_Device How can we control … Read more

The phenomenon of RAIN is an emotion. Some love it from a distance while some enjoy being drenched in it. But what everyone longs for, are those brief showers that help cool down the hot and dry summers and provide a sense of thermal relief. With that we wonder, can a curated rainfall, brought in … Read more


Statement In extreme summer heat, our bodies work overtime to regulate how we feel. It takes massive amounts of energy to maintain a normal and consistent body temperature. All this energy use can cause us to feel tired and sluggish.It makes it important to have a COOLING system in high temperatures. What is a possible … Read more


Wave is a phenomenon of transferring the energy from atmospheric wind motion to the sea surface activated by wind energy, with periods from 3 to 20 seconds sea waves energize renewable power generation. Vital for coastal regions, refreshing sea breezes reduce the temperature by an average of 2-5 degrees. So as architects, we decided to … Read more


Turbulence is fluid motion that is chaotic in time and space. It is characterized by vortices and eddies on many scales. Turbulence can be visualized through particles that flows through the fluid of which the turbulence is active, that are emphasized by the use of light The aim of the project is to explore the … Read more
