Professor Michael Jemtrud
School of Architecture
My research focuses on traditional and technologically-mediated methodologies and practices in architecture, urban design, and related artistic practices. My current SSHRC Research Creation in the fine arts grant entitled “Modeling the Methodologies of Our Time” explores the manner in which contemporary models of the biomorphic, biomimetic, parametric, and environmental play out in the design and realization of architecture.
The research approach cultivated in FARMM is a humanities-based research-creation methodology that aims to produce cultural content alongside traditional scholarship while simultaneously developing technology, techniques, and tools for creative activity and design.
