Computational Methods in Architecture
Enhancing architectural design through the use of innovative computational methods.
This group researches innovative computational methods for use in the creative and design industries.
In particular, we look at form-finding using parametric and generative methods, preparing digital information for further rigorous analysis, and integrating the logic of digital fabrication into the early stages of design.
