Computational design and fabrication

Beijing / Aug 2010

TSINGHUA  ARCHITECTURE  SUMMER SCHOOL

PARAMETRIC DESIGN WORKSHOP

31/07/2010 – 11/08/2010

As a part of The Beijing Biennale 2010, Tsinghua University held a workshop on Parametric Design. This focused on algorithmic design, techniques, and theory alongside the study of practical precedents. The theoretical aim is to allow the participants an understanding of how parametric design techniques enhance the design efficiency and flexibility from concept design phases to the practical installation.

The design brief of this intensive studio-based workshop is re-thinking the role of creativity in the realm of Architecture design through 3D prototyping design and advanced parametric installation.

WORKSHOP TOPIC

1. Theory of Non-Linear Architecture and Parametric Design

2. Basic Parametric Modeling Technique for Complex Geometry

3. Advanced Parametric Modeling Technique for Complex Geometry

4. Digital and Practical Fabrication for Complex Geometry
