Research at the EPFL Geometric Computing Laboratory focuses on efficient representations, scalable data structures, and robust algorithms for digital 3D models. Our goal is to understand fundamental principles of geometric computing and leverage these insights to develop new algorithms and tools for 3D shape analysis, simulation, design, and fabrication. Our research explores the interface of several scientific disciplines, such as mathematics, computer science, materials science, and architecture to facilitate innovative computational design solutions for advanced manufacturing and construction. The projects below provide entry points to current research activities of our lab. A collection of past projects can be found here. Some of our research results are materialized in Design Prototypes.
