We are looking forward to hosting our first in person meeting with the LDT Industry Advisors, kicking off the next phase of research and engagement! We are eager to start working on new ideas and prototypes for a better built environment! This year we will begin with a summer research studio that includes current students in the Master in Design Engineering Program at Harvard, and we will interact frequently with our industry advisors. The goal for the summer is to map out the space of interest, research precedents, and generate ideas for research agendas that will then be pursued during the remainder of the year! Our theme will be ‘Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things, and the Build Environment’, and we will focus on the threefold aspects of data, materials, and the human experience.
