Dear friends and colleagues,
Welcome to the website of the Research Center for Architecture and Tectonics [RCAT] and the Advanced Computational Design Laboratory [ACDL] and the joint RCAT | ACDL group. This website serves as both an introduction and a summary archive of the work undertaken in the context of the RCAT | ACDL group.
Founded in 2011 and in 2014 respectively RCAT and ACDL are located at the Oslo School of Architecture and Design. RCAT focuses on developing an overarching approach to performance-oriented architecture. This is based on an inter- and transdisciplinary approach to research by design, practice-oriented inquiry, design and built activities, and information-based design rooted in integrated advanced computational design in architecture. RCAT and integrates master-, PhD- and post-doctoral level education and research. ACDL is the innovation laboratory of RCAT. RCAT collaborates with distiguished practices, universities and idenpendent research organisations.
For more detailed information see RCAT | ACDL.

One of the tendencies that continues to plague architectural research and innovation is the continual omission of vital references, precedents and inspriations found in the work of others. We therefore seek to list this information explicitly wherever possible. We welcome notification if there are any unintended omission .
