COURSE BRIEF

Design Computing encourages analytical design thinking. Computational methodologies as well as computational technologies and tools lie at the core of the subject. The goal is to help students understand and work on design problems (or solutions) with the computational mind: Analyze the problem, discover and define the discrete sub-problematic(s), propose a solution system to generate organizations (designs), and evaluate the products. but not in a conventional linear way (apply all of the above to the final product, too). Design computing builds skills on top of the given ones in Architectural Geometry, but moves on to a further step by placing computing (via the computer) as the driver of the studies. While geometric knowledge helps students build precisely-controlled geometrical compositions, algorithms become the exploratory tools to investigate emergent forms of design. Two-way reflection of ideas with the design studio, Basic Design II, from and to Design Computing helps students harness design ideas, concepts of computation and geometry simultaneously
