Reinhard König

 

 


 

Dr. Reinhard Koenig studied architecture and urban planning. He completed his PhD thesis in 2009 at the University of Karlsruhe. Dr. Koenig has worked as a research assistant and appointed Interim Professor at Bauhaus-University Weimar. He heads research projects on the complexity of urban systems and societies, the understanding of cities by means of agent based models and cellular automata as well as the development of evolutionary design methods. Current research interests of Reinhard König are applicability of multi-criteria optimisation techniques for planning problems and correlations of computed measures of spatial configurations with human cognition and usage of space. Together with Estefania Tapias, he teaches the course ‘New Methods in Urban Analysis and Simulation’ where ETH students learn how to analyze and generate spatial urban configurations with advanced computational methods.

Understand a city’s people, components, functions, scales and dynamics, as precondition for its sustainable design and management. Understanding a city as a whole, its people, components, functions, scales and dynamics, is crucial for the appropriate design and management of the urban system. While the development of cities in different parts of the world is moving in diverse directions, all estimations show that cities worldwide will change and grow strongly in the coming years. Especially in the tropics over the next 3 decades, it is expected that the number of new urban residents will increase by 3 times the population of Europe today.
