FS2014 | New Methods in Urban Analysis and Simulation

In the course ‘New Methods in Urban Analysis and Simulation’ spatial configurations are analyzed throughout computational methods. In a series of theory lectures we explore how the design and planning of cities can be evidence-based by using scientific methods.

 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. 

In a series of theory lectures we explore how designing and planning of cities could become evidence based by using scientific methods. Various exercises will provide training for your skills in working with state-of-the-art yet office proven design tools (Depthmap, Ecotect, and Rhino/Grasshopper). In an integral project work, you will deepen your knowledge in spatial analysis and simulation methods such as Space Syntax using Depthmap software and environmental analysis with the program Ecotect. In addition you will acquire skills for using analysis methods for generative design processes. Therefore we introduce you into the parametric design software Grasshopper for Rhino 3D. 

Based on the methods introduced during the semester, you will learn and understand different effects of planning and design interventions on urban life. At the end of the course you will be able to interpret analysis and simulation results, and to apply correspondent computational methods for your own planning projects.
