Description

 

This is an introductory to algorithmic architecture with focus on parametric modelling. This course is to prepare students for modelling architectural geometry through the development of parametric schemes for architecture. Topics in parametric architecture include numerical data sets, functions, Boolean data types, vectors and planes, parametric spaces, deformations and morphing.
 
Fabrication of resulting complicated forms; topics include exporting data to data sheet, laser cutting and manufacturing, labeling, and assembly.
