Teaching Content:

Digital technologies are a strategic asset to produce innovation in the building sector. Well-reasoned adoption of modern computer-aided-design software and hardware will improve productivity and will be a catalyst for the emergence of new design solutions that could lead to increased efficiency in the use of resources (e.g., material, carbon).

Nowadays, design in practice is a multi-objective and iterative process that involves several stakeholders including architects, structural engineers, contractors and clients. In early-stage design, there is a need for an intuitive yet analytically informed approach to produce and test efficiently multiple what-if scenarios. Subsequently, can support a more efficient computer-driven production of the different components.

This course will provide an overview of different approaches and transfer fundamentals of parametric and algorithmic modeling to structure the design process as a computational workflow. This integrated approach enables the efficient generation and performance evaluation of candidate solutions as the design process evolves. An introduction to best practices in building information modeling (BIM) and an overview of emerging technologies for monitoring including virtual (VR) and augmented reality (AR) will be provided.

The central part of the course will focus on the use of different computer-aided design applications and related design methods: the sessions provide students with theoretical elements as well as hands-on experience through computational modeling.
