Krets conducts research into architectural processes with implications into social, cultural and technological aspects. The work is pursued in response to emerging electronic cultures which are bringing about new conditions in public and private environments, as well as the parallel development of digitally enhanced production strategies. The group operates through project-based work, ranging from design projects to public seminars and workshops.
The research is investigating the impact of new technologies on design processes, collaborative models and architectural design solutions. Each project consists of a collection of prototypes situated between the product and the experiment. Alternate design and production strategies informed by digital technologies of mass customization are deployed in all stages of development.
Krets was established in 2003 and is affiliated with AKAD, the Academy for practice-based research in architecture and design, Sweden. Krets partners are practicing architects as well as researchers affiliated with the Schools of Architecture at the Royal Institute of Technology (Stockholm), University of California, Los Angeles and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (Zurich).
