The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Architecture, posts vacant PhD fellowship in the project "Fungal Architectures (FUNGAR)"

The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Architecture, posts vacant PhD fellowship in the project “Fungal Architectures (FUNGAR)”

Framework

Fungal Architectures is a 3-year project funded under the EU Horizon 2020 FETOPEN (Future and Emerging Technologies Open), Research and Innovation action. The project assembles a highly cross disciplinary team comprising Architecture (CITA, KADK), Computer Science and Biophysics (University of West England), Mycology (University of Utrecht) and industry experts in mycelium-based technologies (MOGU, Italy).

This call is for a fully funded 3 year PhD fellowship that is fully integrated within the project.

The PhD will be situated at research centre CITA (Centre for Information Technology and Architecture), as part of Institute for Architecture and Technology. The fulltime position will start 1st December 2019, or soon as possible thereafter.

General Project Summary

As one of the primary consumers of environmental resource, the building industry faces unprecedented challenges in needing to reduce its environmental impact and current consumption practices. This grand societal challenge requires approaches that envision a paradigm shift in how material is sourced, processed and assembled, to address the magnitude of these challenges in a truly sustainable way. These new approaches may also result in new kinds of material with new functionalities and implications for the way in which architecture is designed, constructed and inhabited.

In this research project, we propose to develop a structural substrate using live fungal mycelium; functionalise the substrate with nanoparticles and polymers to make mycelium-based electronics; implement sensorial fusion and decision making in the fungal electronics; and grow monolithic buildings from this functionalised fungal substrate. We will develop Kagome based woven stay-in-place formworks for supporting and shaping the mycelium composite, and investigate the impact of topology and geometry on spatial, structural and computational characteristics.

PhD Focus

This PhD will focus on two principle tasks within the broader project.

1. Preliminary Characterisation and Modelling [12 months] :

This task will focus on preliminary characterisation of mechanical properties (bending, compression, tension with tests performed according to recognised standards) of the mycelium/substrate/weave composite. Particular attention will be paid to the influence of woven formwork parameters on mechanical properties of the composite, including variations of weave material, weave angles, cover ratios. These preliminary characterisation results will be used to build numerical models for use in T5.3 to predict the mechanical behaviour of novel designs.

2. Design rules for fungal architecture [18 months]:

This task will focus on investigating and defining novel architectural design rules that integrate spatial organisation, structural requirements and computational functions at architectural scale. The topology and geometry of designs will be investigated as the principle control parameters for achieving integration. This will be investigated in simulation and validated through physical prototypes.

The PhD student will work directly and primarily with the tasks outlined above. There is an obligation to share relevant findings with other consortium members, and a reciprocal obligation to integrate findings from other work-packages where necessary. CITA’s participation in the project is led by Associate Professor Phil Ayres who acts as Principle Investigator on the project and primary PhD supervisor. The project also includes two further positions, both based at CITA.

Center for Information Technology and Architecture (CITA)

CITA [Center for Information Technology and Architecture] is an innovative research environment that explores the emerging intersections between architecture and digital technologies. By exploring central research questions of how space and technology affect one another, CITA aims to identify how the current emergence of a digital practice impacts architectural thinking and design.

CITA places special focus on the use of IT as a tool for the design, production and communication of architecture with particular attention placed on material performance. CITA employs a practice based research method focussing on design-led physical experimentation and full scale prototyping. The physical experiments act as material research inquiries by which the concepts and technologies of the investigations are tested and evaluated. The center has an international profile, extensive experience of running funded research projects and has initiated numerous international collaborations, exhibitions, conference presentations and workshop exchanges.

CITA is headed by Professor Mette Ramsgaard Thomsen, PhD, and is further staffed by 3 associate professors, 1 post-doc, 6 PhD students and 1 research assistant.

Institute of Architecture and Technology (IBT)

The Department of Architecture and Technology unites building art with studies of digital technologies in the development and use of materials, the design and properties of the building structures and the conditions of the building. The institute focuses on how technologies in critical interaction with architecture can enrich the community and cope with global challenges - both in Danish and international contexts. We work on materials studies, building physics and tectonic innovation. The department's research and artistic development often takes place in close interdisciplinary cooperation with relevant institutions and companies all over the world.

The department's teaching is organized in 1 bachelor's program and 3 master's programs that form the framework for a number of academic development environments in architecture and technology. In addition, the institute contributes to KADK's interdisciplinary teaching.

Qualification requirements

The PhD is fixed as three years of full-time study. On the application date, the applicant must have achieved a Master's degree (120 ECTS credits or corresponding) within architecture or other degree of equivalent relevancy (e.g engineering, material science).

Mature skills in appropriate computational modelling, programming and experimental testing are expected and must be demonstrated in the application.

Terms of employment

Enrolment takes place with a view to obtain a PhD degree, and leads to salaried employment for a period of three years in accordance with the agreement between the Danish Ministry of Finance and the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations, AC, protocol on graduate fellowships (annex 5). The salary consists of a seniority-based base salary and a non-pensionable allowance.

The PhD programme is structured under the provisions of Ministerial Order on the PhD Programme at the Universities and Certain Higher Artistic Educational Institutions (PhD Order) no. 1039 of 27 August 2013 issued by the Ministry of Science, Innovation and Higher Education regarding PhD programmes and PhD degrees. This executive order is available on the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Architecture’s website (https://kadk.dk/en/regulatory-basis)

If you have completed a degree abroad, it will be assessed by the Danish Agency for International Education before employment can take place. Practical information can be found at http://ufm.dk/en/education-and-institutions/recognition-and-transparency/recognition-guide.

Application requirements

There are no application forms. Applications must be written in English and submitted as one pdf-file. The application must include:

• A reflection on the stated architectural aims of the project in the form of proposed theoretical orientations, proposed research question, comparison to existing research, preliminary syllabus, PhD timeline and a proposal of the principle methods to be employed in the PhD project development (max. 5 regular standard pages).

• CV.

• Documentation of educational merits, other qualifications and previous activities. If you have completed a degree abroad, it will be assessed by the Danish Agency for International Education. Practical information can be found at http://www.iu.dk/anerkendelse/ansoegning-om-vurdering/skema-almindeligt.

• A list of published papers/publications (if applicable).

• A list of anticipated publications and dissemination venues for the project.

• A portfolio of previous works and studies completed.

Please submit application electronically via the button “Søg stillingen” (Apply for position) below, to reach KADK no later than Tuesday 1st October 2019 at 12.00 noon Danish time.

Applications and application material received after the application deadline will not be included in the assessment.

Further information
