Parametric Urban Design Workshop

Iuliia Osintseva, Martin Bielik and Sven Schneider from InfAR Bauhaus-Universität Weimar introduced students of EiABC to Parametric Urban Design in Addis Ababa

In March 2023, Iuliia Osintseva, Martin Bielik and Sven Schneider of Bauhaus-Universität Weimar gave a 2-weeks workshop on parametric urban design at the Ethiopian Institute for Architecture, Building Construction and City Development (EiABC). The workshop took place at the joint lab of the two institutes, the Emerging City Lab Addis Ababa (ECL-AA). More than 15 architectural and urban design students took part in the workshop. They learned the basics in parametric modelling and created an own parametric urban typology. The students applied this parametric urban typology to an urban site in Addis Abeba, created different variants for this site and analysed their floor area and solar access.

The workshop was funded by the ERASMUS+ programme.
