Integrated Urbanism

IUDD Study Project, Summer 2021
In this design studio we will develop integrated planning strategies for a small city in rural Ethiopia. Therefore we will use the food, water and mobility  as a starting points for an integrated sustainable urban development.

Computational Methods for User-Centered Architectural Design

Seminar, Summer 2021
The objective of this course is to learn knowledge and methods for better anticipating the perspective of the user of architectural spaces. Therefore you will on the one hand learn computational methods for quantifying daylight, visibility and accessibility. On the other hand you will learn a tool for conducting user studies in Virtual Reality.

Computational Urban Analysis

Seminar, Summer 2021
In this seminar you learn the basics for quantitative urban analysis, including density, visibility and accessibility.

Introduction to Masters' Thesis (IUDD)

Seminar, Summer 2021
In this seminar we will prepare you for the writing of a Master Thesis. Therefore the basic elements of scientific working (logical thinking, argumentation, development of research questions and hypotheses as well as selection of methods) are introduced.

Parametric Urban Design & Analysis II

Seminar, Summer 2021
The course extends the knowledge and methods you learned in PUDA I. You will learn and train advanced parametric modeling techniques and further analysis methods as well as basic knowledge about statistics to study relationships between urban form and its manifold functions.
