名古屋市立大学大学院芸術工学研究科 木村俊明研究室です。本研究室は, 力学, 最適化・デジタル技術を駆使し, 革新的で省資源かつ安全な建築を実現する構造設計法の構築を目指しています。

本研究室では主に(1) 大スパン構造の形態創生と構造性能の分析,(2) 構造最適化・デジタル技術を使った部材・システムの開発,(3) 近代建築のリバースエンジニアリングに取り組んでいます。


We are Structural Design Lab of Graduate School of Design and Architecture, Nagoya City University.
We try to find a novel and rational structural design approach to realize a sustainable and reliable architecture using structural mechanics, structural optimization, and digital techniques.

The topic of our research can be summarized as follows,

  • Computational morphogenesis and analysis of structural behavior
  • Structural design method for shell and spatial structures
  • Application of optimal design theory
  • Structural design for mid-story isolated structure
  • Development of new structural element and system using optimization and additive manufacturing
  • Reverse engineering for historical modern architecture

We welcome students who are interested in architecture and structural engineering, construction methods, and information technology, and who are willing to study.
