Courses

Parametric Urban Design & Analysis II :: PUDA II 19.1

In this course we will deal with computational methods to support this process.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.

Evolutionary Design Methods :: EDM 19.1

In this course, you are introduced to Evolutionary Algorithms and their application for your design or planning project. We use various components in Grasshopper (Galapagos, Octopus, Opossum, Wallacei) that provide algorithms for single and multi-criteria optimization.

Introduction to Scripting with C# for Grasshopper in Rhino3D :: ISC 18.2

In this course, we introduce you to the programming language C#, which we use as a scripting language in Grasshopper for Rhino3D. This scripting knowledge is necessary to have more control of your Grasshopper definition.

Urban Modeling and Simulation :: UMS Advanced 19.1

In this course, you learn to work with advanced urban modeling and simulation techniques based and system dynamics methods. We deal with the modeling of complex spatial systems on the regional and urban level. In this context, computational analysis methods for urban fabric and models for computing interactions between land uses are introduced.

Computational Methods for User-Centered Architectural Design :: UCA 19.1

The creation of spaces is at the heart of architectural and urban design. However, statements of designers about spatial qualities often remain vague and ambiguous. In this seminar, we will examine methods for quantitative analysis of urban space and examine in how far these quantities relate to human behavior.

Urban Modeling and Simulation :: UMS Basics 18.2

In this course, we introduce you to the basic theories of models and systems, as well as to urban simulation methods with Grasshopper for Rhino 3D. We model spatial systems on different abstraction levels and integrate computational analysis methods for urban fabric and models for interactions between land uses.

Parametric Urban Design & Analysis :: PUDA 18.2

In this course, you will first learn to create parametric models, that allow to quickly generate a large number of design variants. Secondly, you will get introduced to spatial analysis methods in order to identify different qualities of the generated urban forms.
