Dr. Lee has demonstrated outstanding research success in South Korea by earning a full-time lecturer grant specialising in programming (digital design), funded by National IT Research Promotion Agency (March 2003 to February 2006), a Brain Korea (BK) 21 participation scholarship in 2007. He, as a research professor, participated in the construction infrastructure technology program in 2008. Before becoming a lecturer /researcher, he as an architectural designer had various experience in architectural planning and design practice over four years.
His research has aimed to merge physical and virtual design factors into an embodied architectural space. Dr. Lee’s most significant contributions have been made towards architectural and design research. His current research areas include (1) design cognition and parametric design, (2) architectural & design computing and (3) urban strategic planning.
As an expert in the field of architectural & design computing, Dr Lee was invited to become a visiting academic at the University of Newcastle in February 2011. In October 2012 he was appointed to a full-time research position at Newcastle as a post doc fellow in the School of Architecture and Built Environment.

Dr Lee has been leading his own research project on parametric design within the School and CIBER at Newcastle. As part of this he has successfully conducted experiments on the design process and products. The results were presented at ANZAScA2011, Design Research Society (DRS 2012), Design Computing and Cognition (DCC’12) conference. His pioneering research on parametric design has supported an increasingly intensive and internationally significant area of research.
Since 2003 Dr Lee’s research has contributed broadly to the field of architectural planning and design analysis. His dissertation focuses on strategic planning schemes for mixed-use complexes in Seoul. His study has been published in the Journal of the Architectural Institute of Korea: Planning and Design, and Green Tech, Eco Life, & Sustainable Architecture for Cities of Tomorrow (GEST2009). A series of his strategic planning studies has also been published in the 19th Pacific-Rim Real Estate Society conference. This research provided formal urban planning strategies based on correlation and exploratory factor analysis and has been extended to an in-depth analysis on the opportunities and challenges of MXD projects using strategic planning indicators.
Dr lee had published in the field of architectural & design computing, especially on architectural applications for real-time computing and context awareness in the building environments. A majority of Dr Lee's publications are also in the area of applying novel technologies. For example, he has developed ‘RFID Applications in a Building Project’, ‘Mobile Service Control System and context-aware DBMS’, ‘CAME (Context Aware Mobile Engine)’, ‘Context-Aware Inference Engine considering User Behaviour in the Ubiquitous Housing’, and ‘a Work Service Model of the Ubiquitous Office’ since 2006. This research has been published in CAADRiA, CAADFutures, ISARC, GEST2009, and the Journal of Civil Engineering and Architecture as well as several Korean refereed journals. His expertise also allowed him to teach professionals at major architectural firms in South Korea. After receiving a Ph.D. degree in Housing and Interior Design, Dr Lee also conducted research on specifying a mixed reality-based design system. The mobile augmented reality for embodied environments in terms of immersion and mobile creativity is one of his on-going research contributions to the architectural & design computing research field.
Dr. Lee has developed strong and effective working relationships in (1) analysing and publishing the results of research projects; (2) collaborating by merging his research and the School’s projects with faculty members; (3) fostering international collaboration as well as supervising/mentoring HDR students in the School.
Fields of Research
|120304||Digital And Interaction Design||20|
- Computer Aided Architectural Design
- Research methodology
Since Dr. Lee became a full-time lecturer in South Korea in 2003, he has taught Digital Design, CAD Studio, Digital Presentation, etc. He also Instructed students on the practical application of various Architectural design and presentation environments. His expertise also allowed him to teach 'parametric design' to professionals at major architectural firms in South Korea.
After joining the School, Dr. Lee has tutored 'Research in the built environment (ARBE4121)' and 'Building Information Modelling and Design collaboration (ARBE2202)'.
