title The Pedagogical Meanings of an Experimental Full-Size Mock-Up of Computational Design
source Living Systems and Micro-Utopias: Towards Continuous Designing, Proceedings of the 21st International Conference on Computer-Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia (CAADRIA 2016) / Melbourne 30 March–2 April 2016, pp. 839-848
summary Skill in the use of digital media tools is growing more im- portant in architectural education. However parametric objects in computational geometry or digital fabrication as an assist for project- based learning are not in themselves sufficient to extract the potential of computational design. When we consider the performance of a de- sign, or the fundamental purpose of parametric design toolsets in the contemporary context, education must act as a connecter to the ambi- tion of global sustainability. With regards to the advantage of compu- tational methodologies, students benefit by developing a holistic vi- sion of non-standardized assembly technology. This is particularly useful in overcoming problems of mass production, and with the crea- tion of interactive technology that is incrementally adaptable in the process of answering to unpredictable change. In this context, a com- prehensive understanding of digital tools as part of a holistic and eco- logical architectural design mindset is crucial for future designers. Exploring effective ways to guide students in the development of this capability is therefore important. This paper documents a recent effort in this direction through examples of education within a digital design studio. As a conclusion the paper discusses important factors in the encouragement of students as they develop a comprehensive under- standing of the use of digital design culture.
