The goal of the Digital Design in Sustainable Urbanism course was to introduce students into the new world of possibilities in digital design; especially in the shift in thinking design through the use of algorithmic processes and parametric modeling. The task of learning a new parametric design software, within this tight schedule, is no simple task when you combine it with the requirements of testing and analyzing the influence that different design parameters have in the urban design.
The course demonstrated different analysis and design methods in urban scale and encouraged students to explore the design potential of them. The methods were selected to form a broad scale of analysis and design processes that could be beneficial in urban scale design development. Each week represented a new set of methods and challenges for the students to absorb.
The design explorations presented in this book, represent the student’s answers to these different tasks presented to them. Through their work, they demonstrate vast potential and great assimilation of knowledge within this tight schedule.
