Research Interests: 

Thün's research and creative practice ranges in scale from that of the regional territory and the city, to high performance buildings, to full-scale prototype-based work exploring responsive and kinetic envelopes that mediate energy, atmosphere, and social space. These operational scales are tied together through a methodology that entails a complex systems approach; one that assembles around each project a multiplicity of actors, forces and contexts and leverages these multivalent and sometimes contradictory agents towards integrated and synthetic design work.
