Jeroen van Ameijde is Assistant Professor at the School of Architecture, the Chinese University of Hong Kong, and a partner of Urban Systems Office, London, a practice specialising in generative design processes for architectural and urban applications. Before joining CUHK, he taught at the Architectural Association for 11 years in several roles, including as Course Tutor in the graduate school and as Unit Master in the undergraduate programme. He has also taught at the University of Pennsylvania and the Bartlett, University College London, and has organised numerous workshops in collaboration with universities and institutions worldwide. He is a chartered member of the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and a registered architect in the UK (ARB). Jeroen’s research interests focus on the intersection between urban design and architecture at dense urban locations. His work explores how in this area of application, the organisation and mixing of social, cultural and economic activities can be guided through advanced computational methods for data management and design testing. He employs “generative design” as a methodology to develop programmatically complex urban and architectural proposals, as well as a value system to evaluate and speculate how these interventions can contribute to the growth and development of the city over time.
