“We develop visual methods for the analysis, design and simulation of urban systems for a sustainable future”

    HS2014 | Digital Urban Simulation

    A solid knowledge of computational methods is an increasingly important key competence for future architects or urban planners. In this course you will learn how to analyze and generate spatial configurations with advanced computational methods.

    HS2014 | Digital Urban Visualization. Understanding Dynamics

    At what extent do we need to know the instrument called computer in order to not be ruled by it? The goal of this course is to learn the "language" of the computer, a programming language to better understand urban dynamics by plausibly visualize publicly available data.

    HS2014 | Information Architecture of Cities

    The elective course ‘Information Architecture of Cities’ opens a holistic view on existing and new cities, with focus on Asia. The goal is to better understand the city by going beyond the physical appearance and by focusing on different representations, properties and impact factors of the urban system. As course requirement, there will be three short exercises.

    FS2014 | Visualize ComplexCity

    The students will learn how to visualize big data bulks in a meaningful way using Blender and Python. The goal is to make raw data visible by the generic means of program code (Python). The resulting visualizations will be incorporated into urban video footage by using animation and rendering tools of Blender.
