The program is part of the 2-year Master's program at the school of Architecture. Read more about the program's academic content and structure here.
The Computation in Architecture masters is structured around project-based experimentation and direct design engagement. These activities are supported by coursework that introduces modes of applied and reflective enquiry, as well as core skills through which students may begin to conceptualise, implement and critically reflect on the use of computation within their own design practice. Courses in modelling and simulation introduce students to parametric modelling, coding and performance-led design, and build skills in various types of structural and environmental simulations. Courses in digital fabrication introduce students to robotic fabrication, 3D scanning and 3D printing workflows, and sensing and actuation.
At Computation in Architecture you will
- Develop a comprehensive and advanced knowledge of computational techniques, and their assumptions, abstractions, limits and opportunities within architectural design contexts
- Develop advanced and practical skills in applying fabrication technologies to support design investigation, prototyping and synthesis
- Develop personally directed research-informed architectural investigations that deploy digital design strategies to address architectural, structural, fabrication, programmatic and site-based issues
