title Simulacrum, Not Simulation: A Theoretical Approach to Simulation in Education
source SIGraDi 2013 [Proceedings of the 17th Conference of the Iberoamerican Society of Digital Graphics - ISBN: 978-956-7051-86-1] Chile - Valparaíso 20 - 22 November 2013, pp. 369 - 372
summary As the practice of architecture grows increasingly more infatuated with verisimilitude, the technical skills required to enable a morphogenetic design process become increasingly specific and extensive. While this model is not as problematic within the realm of practice, in a pedagogical environment the time and expertise requisite for conducting and evaluating comprehensive simulation is an impediment to developing fundamental design skills and mastery of a morphogenetic process. This paper promotes an approach of simulacra; a procedural acknowledgement of an imperfect simulation that serves to advance design aptitude and critical thinking, rather than the pretention of perfection or accuracy.
