CITA [Centre for IT and Architecture] is a research centre at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, Schools of Architecture, Design and Conservation. CITA examines how new information and communication technologies fundamentally challenges architectural practice as a tool for design, fabrication and communication. CITA has three research areas: Digital Formations, investigating complex modelling and Building Information Modelling as a new design tool for architecture and digital fabrication. Behaving Architectures, investigating new programmable materials and smart textiles and Interface Ecologies investigating real-time modelling, interface design and intelligent programming.

Organisationens forskning

CITA was founded in 2005 and uses a practice based research method, focussed on the conceptualisation, design and realisation of working prototypes and full-scale demonstrators. CITAs work has a strong cross-disciplinary focus consolidates new collaborations with interdisciplinary partners from the fields of engineering, design, robotics and material science. We work through manifold national and international industry collaborations through established programs of industrial PhDs, consultancy, training and research collaboration.

Om organisationen

CITA has a consolidated track record in initiating and running large scale research projects and networks with international partnerships. Currently, CITA is completing three large scale framing projects including Complex Modelling, Innochain and Flora Robotica.
