Please note! Course description is confirmed for two academic years (1.8.2018-31.7.2020), which means that in general, e.g. Learning outcomes, assessment methods and key content stays unchanged. However, via course syllabus, it is possible to specify or change the course execution in each realization of the course, such as how the contact sessions are organized, assessment methods weighted or materials used.
After completing the course students obtain an advanced knowledge of large-scale parametric design thinking. Students are able to integrated and use these methods within design workflows. Students are able to apply the principles of visual programming in their design task. Students are able to connect different elements/tools out of several softwares to an iterative computatational loop.

CONTENT, ASSESSMENT AND WORKLOAD
The hands-on course explores the possibilities to develop computational methods for representing, analyzing and designing in the field of landscape architecture and urbanism. A lecture series by experts, supplemented through exercises and workshops build up a comprehensive toolkit to operate within the emerging field of computational design. Elements of Mixed Reality (AR/VR), robotics, NC production and data-driven design will open up new ways to address complex design tasks.
