title Integrating Computation in Foundation Design Instruction
source SIGraDi 2006 - [Proceedings of the 10th Iberoamerican Congress of Digital Graphics] Santiago de Chile - Chile 21-23 November 2006, pp. 166-170
summary The paper outlines notions suitable for the introduction of computation at the first stages of design education. An exercise, based on a housing competition sponsored by the Habitat For Humanity in Boston, Massachusetts, is presented. The educational objective of the paper is to offer an elementary case of how computation can be used in designing from scratch, in the architectural studio. Shape grammar formalism, analogue, and CAD tools are combined in this effort.
