Integrated Computational Tools

Description

Conceived as an expansion of Integrated Digital Tools, the course focuses on parametric approaches and uses programming as a design tool, exploring the potential of advanced computational techniques in architecture. Mostly based on Grasshopper, an algorithmic modeling plug-in for Rhino, the course encourages students to playfully explore the potential of computation as a creative tool. The students proceed through a series of design tutorials from physical modeling to computation, learning how to control structures and geometries using customizable digital design techniques. On a theoretical level, the course provides a glimpse of the avant-garde research in the field of computational architecture as well as the innovative use of such technologies in design practice on all scales.
