Design Computing III - Geometry

Architectural modeling can no longer be done without computational geometry, which simplifies 3D work and speeds up design procedures. Whether traditional “handmade” design or sophisticated generational design, they rely on the capabilities that contemporary CAAD modeling software brings. Understanding the geometric principles and procedures in this environment gives architects the freedom to create. In addition, a well-educated architect gains the opportunity to rationalize his work and eventually reuse existing problems through a parametric approach to modeling. In this way, multiple design options can be tested. Thanks to the generative model, various types of optimization can be applied within the design - it can be anything from the level of sunshine of all residential spaces, to the sag in the structure to any area and volume ratios. Thanks to multi-criteria optimization, solutions can be found which, moreover, fulfill several such criteria at the same time. In this course, practical applications are tested using Grasshopper (which works with Rhinoceros modeling software) and Dynamo (based on Revit software). Keywords - advanced geometry in architecture, mathematically described geometric objects, use of scripting.

The minimum number of students to open the course is 5. EXCEPTION for self-paying students: if there are less than 5 students, the course will be taught in consultations.
