Dr. Soleimani holds a multidisciplinary Ph.D. and Certificate in Digital Ecologies from Clemson University’s School of Architecture in collaboration and partnership
with the faculty and researchers in Electrical & Computing Engineering, Materials
Science & Engineering, Education, and Human Factors Psychology. The objective of his
research is to focus on the design, prototyping and evaluation of “Intelligent Environmental
Technologies”; in other words, computation embedded in the built environment along
with the development of digital interactions whilst exploring new architectural paradigms.
His teaching efforts focus on the integration of environmental technology and metric-based
systems within the architectural design process as well as advising thesis students.
Soleimani’s architecture concentrates on intelligent forms while inventing new possibilities
for content and everyday use; it is a concept of futurism through a persistent investigation
of the symbiotic potentials in nature and technology.
He is the author of “Responsive and Interactive Environments in Museums: managing responsiveness and interactivity
within museums and exhibitions in a new fashion” (Lambert Publishers, 2013), and several ACM publications in the area of designing
cyber-physical systems and computational thinking.
