Goals rHDS (Reactive Hygroscopic Design Simulation) is an experimental and theoretical design and simulation digital apparatus for the design of rough building massing form in context with climatic variables such as wind direction and speed, and water vapor from real world climate data. The system will develop a reactive environment for conceptual design and massing of building form for... Read more »
Perkins and Will supports small, focused explorations proposed by staff members with micro-grants of money and time through the Innovation Incubator program. The Innovation Incubator promotes the exploration and development of ideas that improve our work, open new areas of business and stretch our collective creativity. The results of these explorations further our design work, improve our design process and contribute to the knowledge base of our industry.
The program was launched in 2010 and was an immediate success. With close to 700 entries over 20 cycles, sustained interest in the Innovation Incubator at all levels of the firm is testament to its relevance in our ever-growing culture of innovation.
