The professorship Computational Architecture develops methods and techniques for a more sophisticated, smarter digital design support. The general approach is to aggregate the designers' past experience using data analysis techniques and optimization algorithms to develop a smart design support system that can assist in finding the best compromises for complex design problems. The teaching introduces students to the latest future-oriented digital methods for simulation, analysis and automation from the fields of research and new industrial developments.
The Junior Professorship Computational Architecture started its activities on October 2015.
New Demonstration Video for Computational Urban Synthesis
This video demonstrates the procedural methods for generating street networks, blocks, parcels ans buildings. They are provided as Grasshopper components and are developed by the Computational Plannig Group http://cplan-group.net
