Urban Infrastructure and Planning
Environmental Analysis and Optimisation
K. Daniel Yu is an Associate Lecturer in the School of Built Environment within the Faculty of Arts, Design and Architecture at the University of New South Wales. Specialising in advanced computational design workflows, Daniel has received a Bachelor of Architectural Computing, with Distinction, and a Masters of Philosophy in Architecture from the University of New South Wales. His masters research examines the translation of Slime Molds for parametric infrastructure planning through artificial organic simulations and topographical analysis. Previously in Daniel’s work as a post-graduate research associate in the Computational Design program at the University of New South Wales, he has been involved in numerous research projects developing analytical and optimisation processes from macro to micro scales.
