Course Description: This course introduces methods for developing a virtual building model as an integrated and interactive tool for architectural design decision-making. Architectural modelling can no longer be understood simply as a digital drafting of 3D geometries or the physical construction of a scaled miniature. Virtual building modelling incorporates increasingly complex and interconnected sets of data. In this course, modelling is construed as the formation of an architectural problem. This includes defining data and variables across scales and disciplines, as well as converting data into meaningful information for architectural analysis, synthesis, and evaluation. Students gain knowledge of fundamental concepts of algorithmic architecture, including BIM; are exposed to various ways in which it can be used; and develop understanding through a series of digital modelling exercises.
