80111 Advanced Digital Tools for Architectural Design and Structural Optimisation



Delve deep into the world of multi-criteria and complex design problem solving and explore the parametric approaches that drive environmentally and structurally sound architectural solutions. The course is hands-on, using a design exercise for an architectural?canopy to?explore?the?methods and systems that drive multi-criteria design approaches.?

The course teachs the student how to approach complex design problems using multi-objective optimisation methods. Using advanced digital tools within the Rhino 3D software platform, (structural analysis software?Karamba?3D, parametric software?Grasshopper 3D,?and generative and evolutionary software?Wallacei), the student develops skills in addressing the fine grain of environmental?issues, and the structural and material?opportunities?for complex architectural forms.?
