Sep - 19 - 2011

NEW METHODS IN URBAN SIMULATION AND MODELLING

The course consists of lectures and exercises of state-of-the-art and emerging simulation methods that can assist urban planners, architects and landscape planners in the design process. The simulations are based on the stocks and flows model and include parameters such as density, transportation, materials, capital, sustainability and visualization.

The course is structured into nine lectures, including one guest lecture, nine exercises, individual coaching hours every Thursday and independent work. Working in groups is a core part of the didactic concept.

The course is coordinated with Simulating Urban Design Futures
