Gregory Luhan is the associate dean for research in the College of Design and the Kentucky Housing Corporation-John Russell Groves Professor in Affordable Housing Design in the School of Architecture. His expertise includes digital visualization leading to digital manufacturing with applications to design-build projects, full-scale assembly, and the incorporation of ecological design features. In 2006, Professor Luhan and his students designed and built the Resonance House through a partnership with Design Lab, Inc., a private, not-for-profit, 501c3 Corporation whose mission is to enhance the built environment through design and research. The result was an award winning, contemporary, single-family residence located in Lexington’s Western Suburb Historic District. Every aspect of the Resonance House was digitally designed–from initial planning through the building process–to ease manufacturing, reduce material usage and construction waste, and ensure energy efficiency. Professor Luhan expects that many of unique features of the Resonance House will become commonplace in the future.
