title Cross-disciplinary Prototyping: Pedagogical Frameworks for Integrating Biological Analogies into Design Courses
source ACADIA 11: Integration through Computation [Proceedings of the 31st Annual Conference of the Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture (ACADIA)] [ISBN 978-1-6136-4595-6] Banff (Alberta) 13-16 October, 2011, pp. 380-389
summary The increasing use of digital tools within the architectural curriculum dictates a necessity for critically approaching technology beyond its perception as a ‘tool’, towards the creation of a ‘method’. This paper proposes the use of discrete components, such as biology, computation and fabrication to build theoretical frameworks which inform design ‘experiments’ inviting the participation of the end-user through incorporation of kinetic devices. This is discussed with reference to a recently designed course, making an attempt to assess its strengths and potential as they relate to integration.
