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.



Pixel-Hof reimagines Tempelhof, Berlin’s iconic 386-hectare airport, into a vibrant, sustainable urban oasis while addressing the housing crisis. Our innovative project weaves modular homes and dynamic activity spaces into a responsive pixelated grid, honoring the site’s historic spirit. Extending and morphing the existing plot grid to the site’s unique forms, we create conservation zones and … Read more


The proposed vision for Tempelhof is articulated as a ‘city within a city’ arranged along the two airstrips of the former airport, extending perpendicularly to emphasise a dual directionality. Buildings are conceived as flexible micro-communities built on organic/biodegradable materials, with the possibility of growing or ‘de-growing’ through time.The design strategy aims to trigger a need … Read more


The selected elements from my catalog serve as the foundation for this exploration, culminating in a volumetric design that integrates various features. Key characteristics include a facade excavation for natural airflow, an exposed staircase spanning the building’s length, and a core ‘fish bone’ structure, reminiscent of the Pedregulho Housing Complex, enclosed by a curtain glass … Read more


THE PINNACLE BUILDING FORM The Pinnacle@Duxton is a 50-storey residential development in Singapore ‘s city center, it defines super-density housing with 1,848 apartment units built on a plot of only 2.5 hectares (6 acres)The project addresses pragmatic, financial, social issues, and respond sensitively to a myriad of planning constraints. It boldly demonstrates a sustainable and … Read more
