Title of Research
Adaptive material systems for thermal comfort in architecture
Iva Rešetar has a professional degree in architecture from Technical University in Belgrade with the specialization in Sustainable Architectural Design. Continuing her education at Städelschule Architecture Class in Frankfurt, she received the Master of Arts in Advanced Architectural Design in the class of Prof. Ben van Berkel. Her studies were supported by the scholarship of the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). Iva gained professional experience working both independently and for offices in Belgrade and Germany on competition design and planning of number of projects involving digital modelling and fabrication techniques (1st prize in the international competition and planning of the Extension of the Städel Museum in Frankfurt at schneider+schumacher). For her research on inhabitable textiles, she received a residency fellowship at the Akademie Schloss Solitude in Stuttgart. Her doctoral project in the ArcInTexETN program explores thermally adaptive material systems that dynamically exchange energy with the environment and provide human comfort.
