Personal profile

Artistic and research interests

Pia Fricker holds the Professorship for Computational Methodology in Landscape Architecture and Urbanism, linking between the area of large-scale landscape architecture design and urban design. In 2017 she founded and directs the Digital Landscape Architecture Laboratory, which is a teaching and research hub fostering the experimental integration of emerging computational methods and workflows. Her research is actively collaborating with other Departments at Aalto University, international academic partners (Federal Institute of Technology Zurich, The Singapore University of Technology and Design, Hafencity University Hamburg) as well as with professional partners on a national and international level. Current research projects: Data-driven Design in the Realm of Mixed Reality, Experience Research in Spatial Immersive Data Interaction in VR (in collaboration with neuroscience), Data Simulation as Design Tool. General research fields: parametric design, algorithmic design, machine learning, Big Data, simulation, point cloud technology,

She is a member of the editorial board of the JoDLA (Journal of Digital Landscape Architecture), the Scientific Program Committee of the DLA conference, the Peer Review Committees of ACADIA (Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture) and eCAADe (Education and research in Computer Aided Architectural Design in Europe), as well as expert peer reviewer for the International Journal of Architectural Computing, Landscape and Urban Planning Journal and the Journal of Architecture and Urbanism.
