Architecture: Course

Jack D.Weiler

Digital Tools and Parametric Design Thinking

Shabtay Ran, Semester 1, Wednesday, 10:00-13:00
The course will investigate how digital technologies are transforming the practice of architecture.This course, a hybrid theoretical/ technical, will use and array of tools to explode the possibilities and potentials and pitfalls of integrating digital processes into architecture.The course will focus primarily on techniques of parametric design (coding scripting and programming)and digital thinking (following writings of Sanford Kwinter, Greg Lynn, Branko Kolarevic, Mario Carpo and more)The goal of this seminar is to formulate an understanding- through reading, writing and modeling- of how such a digital design works, and what it could possibly mean for architecture
