Transcript of A very short introduction to computational design

Formulation formulation is the systematic form of parametric sketching it is a re-iterative intellectual process: to make sure you have full control over design outcome ? PERFORMANCE CONFIGURATION PROBLEM Materialized Geometric Shape FUNCTION SOLUTION Requirements, Constraints and Goals FORM Ada Lovelace What is computational design? I do not think at all! feed-forward feed-back Modes of Control & Computation Who Created the First Computer Programming Language With Respect To Her Ladyship Computation
as a way of thinking the blacker the color the more dense the urban block polycentric distribution of density, with equal weights of importance PhD researcher & Instructor

M.Sc. Architecture (2009)
