Founded in 1996, the Architecture, Representation and Computation group sponsors a wide range of education and research activities to students and visiting scholars at MIT's Department of Architecture. The group's challenge is innovative use of computation for solving problems stemmed in contexts of architectural design practice. Current projects encompass software and hardware development, computer graphics production and entries to architectural design competition.

Dr. Takehiko Nagakura founded Architecture, Representation and Computation group in 1996. Nagakura is a registered architect from Tokyo. He worked for Fumihiko Maki and earned Ph.D. from Harvard University. Currently, he holds architectural practice in Japan, and teaches at MIT's Department of Architecture as Associate Professor of Design and Computation. His research focuses on computation and representation of architectural space and formal design knowledge.
