ARCH 709 – Computational Design


This course discusses integrative computational design methods coupled with robotic manufacturing techniques in architecture. These methods enable both designing highly differentiated structures and controlling nonstandard robotic manufacturing routines to assemble them. The main topics covered in this course include algorithms and data structures, analysis and optimization methods, digital design-to-fabrication workflows, and control systems for robotic construction.

This course is required for the students in the Master of Science in Digital and Material Technologies program. Interested Doctoral and Master of Architecture students should contact the instructor to check seat availability.
