An educator, architect, and computational designer, Arash Soleimani is an assistant professor at the Kennesaw State University Department of Architecture. Previously, Arash taught at the University of North Carolina-Charlotte and Clemson University, USA.
Arash holds a multidisciplinary Ph.D. in Architectural Robotics and a certificate in Digital Ecologies from Clemson University’s School of Architecture in collaboration with the faculty and researchers in Electrical & Computing Engineering, Materials Science & Engineering, Education, and Human Factors Psychology. The objective of his research is to focus on the design, prototyping, and evaluation of “Intelligent Design Systems” employing embedded computation within the context of the built and natural environments. His teaching efforts at KSU focus on the integration of environmental technologies and metric-based systems within design processes as well as advising thesis students. His architecture concentrates on intelligent forms while inventing new possibilities for content and everyday use; it is a concept of futurism through a persistent investigation of the symbiotic potentials in nature and technology.
Arash earned his M.Arch. degree from the University of Nottingham, UK. His graduate studies focused on "Responsive and Interactive Environments in Museums: managing responsiveness and interactivity within museums and exhibitions in a new fashion", where he published a book on the same subject matter. Arash also holds a Bachelor of Architectural Engineering from Isfahan University of Art, Iran.
The Discipline of Intelligent Design Systems (IDS)
Arash has been teaching and researching in various architecture schools in the United States, the UK, and Iran since 2007. His intellectual framework develops and introduces the discipline of Intelligent Design Systems (IDS), which concerns people, environments, rules, and things. IDS builds upon a variety of disciplines to inform one architecture that is invigorated through a focus on three themes:
1) Computational Thinking (CT); 2) Parametrics; and 3) Digital Fabrication.
"IDS explores and elaborates the potential of computation and the role it can play as a part of one’s design process; not as a collection of specific tools, but as a way of thinking about design."
