title ICARUS Project - An Open Source Platform for Computer Programming in Architectural Teaching and Research
source Kepczynska-Walczak, A, Bialkowski, S (eds.), Computing for a better tomorrow - Proceedings of the 36th eCAADe Conference - Volume 1, Lodz University of Technology, Lodz, Poland, 19-21 September 2018, pp. 341-350
summary This paper, presents an ongoing work entitled ICARUS, an abbreviation for 'Integrating Computerized ARchitecture with USers'. The aim of this work is to develop an open source platform for computer programming implemented in architecture, for teaching and research. In particular, the platform provides the framework for a simplified and user friendly textual programming methodology for the needs of our architectural institution. It consists of several modules like coding, plug-in and repository development, targeting to be publicly available in the future. The platform is created based on the Python programming language, which is run in Grasshopper, a plug-in for Rhino 3D. In the first phase of ICARUS development, several case studies within the framework of a postgraduate course are conducted, aiming at providing an overview of its potentials, limitations and generally, its impact on establishing a useful methodology for algorithmic thinking among students with little or no prior computer programming skills.
