The School’s technology programs coalesce in the context of design work, through studio, workshop and professional applications. The computational design program focuses on how digital technologies impact the design process, production and the resulting forms and products. Aspects of computational design are explored throughout the community, through research, educational coursework and real world applications. These School offers numerous courses on aspects of computational design, including formal and geometric study, parametric, scripting and automation. Student teams and faculty professional work extend this study to real world applications.
Beyond that application of digital tools and techniques, the school’s computational design efforts work to rethink the relationship between formal description, systematic building, performance analysis and industrial production. Computational design is explored as a means for capturing and encoding these discrete dimensions of design into a synthetic project of building design, engineering, fabrication and inhabitation.
