HS2013 | 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.

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.

After a series of exercises you will be equipped with skills on modern software systems. In an integral project work, you will expand your knowledge in state-of-the-art, emerging spatial analysis and simulation methods like Space Syntax and environmental analysis with Ecotect. Based on the introduced methods you will be able to simulate and understand the effects of planning and design interventions. At the end of the course you will be capable of interpreting various analysis and simulation results and apply correspondent computational methods for your own planning projects. A solid knowledge of computational methods will be a key competence for you as future architects and urban planners.

We organize the course in cooperation with the chair of architecture and urban design (Prof. Kees Christiaanse). Accordingly, the thematic focus will be on urban neighborhoods of airports in Zurich and Amsterdam.
