Description

Parametric design is the most widely used modeling process in contemporary architecture and design. This course explores the techniques and tools used in parametric modeling and computational design as a foundation for design optimization. Class sessions will introduce several parametric design modeling platforms and scripting environments that enable rapid generation of 3D models and enable rapid evaluation of parametrically-driven design alternatives.

Taking this course for 3 or 4 units will require additional project work. Please note that Non-Degree Option (NDO) students must take a minimum of 3 units per quarter.

Topics include

  • Principles of parametric design versus direct modeling
  • Design exploration using parametric modeling platforms such as Revit/FormIt and Rhino
  • Visual scripting languages and environments such as Dynamo, Grasshopper and DesignScript
  • Single and multi-dimensional optimization techniques and guidance strategies
