  • Bio

  • José Nuno Beirão, graduated in architecture from FAUTL in 1989, date from which he started practicing architecture having been a founding member of the firm bquadrado arquitectos lda. (www.bquadrado.com). He completed his master’s thesis at ISCTE in 2005. The thesis is entitled: “Urban Grammars: towards a flexible urban design methodology” and deals with an analytical study of algorithm-based project methods to obtain urban plans endowed of greater flexibility as a response and way of adaptation to variations of premises.

    In his doctoral thesis entitled CItyMaker: Designing Grammars for Urban Design completed in 2012 at TU Delft in the Netherlands, he further developed the concept by proposing a set of algorithms called ‘urban induction patterns’ described using the formalism of shape grammars (Stiny and Gips, 1972). These are technically generic grammars applicable in the development of parametric urban models. The thesis presents the concept of City Information Modeling (CIM), which combines the development of parametric models and associated georeferenced information as a basis for analytically supported urban design. He is currently in exclusive dedication to FAULisboa where he develops research related to the applications of CIM in urban planning and design.

    His fundamental interests are: data driven parametric urban design; algorithmic design; design systems; shape grammars; with special focus on the design of customizable systems (including housing systems). Computer media and digital manufacturing provide the tools that allow the development of advanced work within these areas of interest.
