ACADEMIC CAREER AND RESEARCH AREAS

Qiguan Shu has his educational background originally in landscape architecture. During his master study, he developed his skills in computational design, living architecture design and programming. He participated in the design and fabrication of Urban Microclimate Canopy. His master thesis "Photogrammetric Point Cloud Skeleton Abstraction for Living Architecture" extracts topological polylines out of jointed aerial root structures by voxel thinning method. It is a sub-task under the research project Living Root Bridges. Afterwards, he kept working interdisciplinarily in the field of digital tools for urban green system, functional-structural plant models. He was one of the project leaders of the design, manufacture and installation of Arbor Kitchen.

Qiguan Shu is now carrying the research project Urban Green System 4.0 funded by DFG for his PhD study at GTLA and affiliated PhD candicate in the research project Urban Green Infrustructure.
