Research / Practice Interests
Prof. Lilley studies ecological, programmatic, and artistic strategies influencing design. His built projects advocate health and well-being of communities through capacity-building, especially through robust facade and garden design. He is involved in cross-disciplinary research into ceramic materials, as well as augmented environments such as computational representation of interior climate and networked knowledge-enhanced forms of circulation.
