The aim of the course is to enable students with an advanced critical and experimental understanding of computation, simulation, and parametric design tools required to develop integrated design as a creative-iterative and explorative process. This within a sustainable-tectonic framework and related to the synthesis of spatial-aesthetic experience, form, material, structure and fabrication into a smaller building design of architectural quality. In this course, there is a specific focus on exploring the relationship between structure and material. Parametric design tools thus support the definition of advanced geometry, and the interaction between geometry and structural-material analysis. Issues of fabrication are considered in the context of computation, parametric modelling and rapid prototyping.
Must have knowledge of complex spatial structures, including a sustainable-tectonic understanding of the structural functionality of various construction systems using shells, plates, frames, beams, etc.
Must have knowledge of computation, simulation and parametric design tools that enable the generation of quick feedback loops from generation of form and performance analysis (structure and material).
Must have knowledge of how different tectonic design strategies and choices on construction methods, structural typologies and material properties enable sustainable practices and influence spatial-aesthetic experiences.
Must be able to make a structural analysis of complex spatial structural systems, and relate this to a sustainable-tectonic perspective and desired spatial-aesthetic experience.
