Dr. Michael S. Bittermann

ACADeMIC MEMBER  (Dr. Ogr. Uyesi)3

Dr. Bittermann studied architecture from 1997-2003 and graduated cum laude (highest honors in the Netherlands) as Master of Science in Architecture from Delft University of Technology (TU Delft), in Delft, The Netherlands. He carried out his Ph.D. during the period 2005-2009 at the chair of Design Informatics, at the Faculty of Architecture of TU Delft. The faculty has been assigned a high rank among the world’s architecture faculties.[1]

Bittermann received his PhD title cum laude (highest honors in the Netherlands) in 2009. Following his Ph.D., Bittermann received the Young Researcher Fellowship of Delft University of Technology (80k€) for outstanding research and academic achievements as one of the five preeminent researchers among the Ph.D. students of all faculties of TU Delft who graduated in 2008 and 2009. In 2014 he joined Maltepe University Istanbul as Assistant Professor, and in the same year he participated in the research project titled Design by Cognition and Comprehension. The project was funded by The Scientific and Technological Research Council in Turkey (TUBITAK 2221 project) and awarded to his colleague Prof. O. Ciftcioglu[2]. In 2015, Dr. Bittermann received an award for the significance of his scientific publications during the previous year from Maltepe University, distinguishing him among the academic members of all faculties of the university. In 2018 he joined Istanbul Technical University as Assistant Professor.

His academic interest is to understand and enhance architectural design through computational modeling of this cognitive activity. Accordingly, he published a number of papers on computational cognition, design theory, visual perception, and aesthetics. Several among the conference papers are IEEE conference papers, indicating the compliance of his work with scientific review standard. Each paper can be obtained via the link associated with its title in sections I and II. His papers have been cited by other scientists in a number of publications as seen in section III.

At TU Delft he lectured in multiple M.S. and B.S. courses. He coordinated a M.S. Program titled Computational Architecture that was a joint program by TU Delft and Middle East Technical University, Ankara. He supervised seven M.S. thesis works. One among the students he supervised graduated with cum laude distinction (highest honors in the Netherlands). Another student he supervised received the award for the best M.S. thesis of the department of the academic year 2011/2012. At Maltepe University Dr. Bittermann lectured in both the M.S. and B.S. programs. He introduced into the architectural curriculum results from the above-mentioned TUBITAK project as well as research on color aesthetics in Architecture. At Istanbul Technical University he has been lecturing in in both the M.S. and B.S. programs. One of his B.S. lectures is titled Statistics for Research and Design, his M.S. lecture is titled Computational Cognition.

Dr. Bittermann is associate editor of The Journal of Cognitive Systems, published by Istanbul Technical University ( URL: dergipark.gov.tr/jcs/ ). He has been reviewer for the Journal Advanced Engineering Informatics published by Elsevier, as well as for several international conferences, including several IEEE conferences. He has also been member of the organizing committee for an international conference held by the association Education and Research in Computer-Aided Architectural Design in Europe (eCAADe) at Delft University of Technology in 2013.

Dr. Bittermann’s current position is Academic Member.[3]

Bittermann has experience in architectural design practice due to internships at the office 1100 Architect in New York (www.1100architect.com) in the period 1999-2000, and at the office of Kas Oosterhuis in Rotterdam (www.onl.eu) in the period 2001-2002. During the last decade several of his independent architectural designs have been built.

His professional motto is: Best practice is based on theory, and best theory is inspired by practice. Accordingly, Bittermann has made use of his own architectural design experience for inspiration of his academic work.

His nationality by birth is German. He also has the Dutch nationality.

IX.     PhD Thesis abstract

Design is complex. This is because it is an expression of cognition, which is a faculty of mind. The aim of the work is to develop a computational model of design to gain insight into the phenomenon from this perspective. Several capabilities of human cognition are reflected in the model. The first one is the ability to reconcile conflicting goals, some of which are vaguely defined; the second one is coping with uncertainty as to the importance of goals. A designer’s cognitive effort manifests in the goal-oriented development of the design product. The properties of the objects that constitute the design are intelligently modified, so that the composition of objects eventually satisfies the objectives. The modeling of this phenomenon is accomplished using methods from the domain of computational intelligence. The approach is implemented for two applications from the domain of Architecture, demonstrating its effectiveness. A significant ‘by-product’ of the gained insight into design cognition is a method allowing architects to increase certainty about the satisfaction of their design goals. The thesis addresses to students, researchers and executives in the field of Architecture and other areas of design. It may be also interesting for researchers in the domain of computational intelligence, as it provides a formalism of intelligent design, and it exemplifies the use of these modern technologies in the design domain.
