Development of high-rise type aiming for social and environmental sustainability.
Systemic ‘Open Building’ division into permanent support and flexible infill-system, combined with hybrid material systems: reinforced concrete and timber systems.

Development of an LCA workflow including a mathematical model assessing the impact of flexibility, intended to also be released to practitioners – as plug-in or stand-alone tool – to enable informed decisions in regards to environmental impact during conceptual design phases.
