Welcome

Welcome to the Computational Design Group at Universtité de Montréal. Our research aims to simplify the design of materials, structures, and systems with complex forms and functions. We combine simulations informed by physical experiments with optimization algorithms to automate technically-difficult and tedious design tasks. Coupled with graphical user interfaces, this approach enables intuitive exploration of complex, nonlinear design spaces, thus removing barriers to creativity.

Our research lies at the intersection of computer graphics, computational mechanics, and digital fabrication. Specific focus areas include computational design of mechanisms, structured materials, and physical surfaces, as well as visual simulation. See here for an overview.
