School of Architecture, Chinese University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong

The School of Architecture at the Chinese University of Hong Kong is firmly committed to developing students’ core competency and critical thinking in order to achieve design creativity and leadership that enable lasting contributions to our built environment. The curriculum is structured not merely to train students to join the architectural profession, but to educate them in adapting to inevitable, future changes to be encountered during their careers.

Jeroen van Ameijde is Assistant Professor at the School of Architecture, the Chinese University of Hong Kong, teaching and conducting research in architecture, urban analytics and data-driven design. Before joining CUHK, he taught at the Architectural Association in London, as well as at The Bartlett, UCL, and the University of Pennsylvania. He has over ten years of experience as practicing architect and urban designer, including as a partner and director at Urban Systems Office, where he coordinated the design and development of several large-scale residential, mixed-use and master planning projects.

Jeroen’s research interests focus on the intersection between urban studies and urban design, and how the analysis and planning of social, cultural and economic activities can be guided through computational methods for data management and design testing. He explores generative design methodologies to test programmatically complex urban and architectural proposals, as well as urban modelling techniques.
