In parametric design and BIM technologies, along with the emergence of artificial intelligence, are making the computational design truly possible, where the performance of building is defined and optimized through the data-driven design process. To meet such data-driven computational design, design firms need to re-structure their resources and process. The design computing expert is at the center of this change, who can control the parametric design system, coordinating the BIM with the digital fabrication process. The new breeds of architects also should be able to mobilize robotic-assisted tools to design sustainable building volumes and façade details from the early stages of design process in an integrated manner. The digital design studio 2017 focuses on the computational design approach for students to be trained as design computing expert in the framework of the design studio 6.
파라메트릭 디자인과 BIM 기술의 고도화, 인공지능의 본격적 도래에 힘입어 데이터를 기반으로 최적화된 성능의 건물을 지향하는 전산화된 건축 설계가 가능하게 되었다. 이러한 디자인에 대응하기 위하여 건축설계 회사의 조직에 급격한 변화가 일어나고 있다. 파라메트릭 디자인 계획을 통제하면서 BIM과 디지털 패브리케이션을 코디네이트할 수 있는 디자인 컴퓨팅 전문가는 현재 국내외의 선도적 설계회사에서는 가장 필요로 하는 인력이다. 이런 새로운 부류의 전문가는 로봇과 결합된 다양한 재료를 이용하여 친환경적인 볼륨과 파사드의 디테일을 설계단계에서부터 통합적으로 다룰 수 있어야 한다. 디지털디자인스튜디오는 설계 스튜디오 6의 공동주거라는 틀에서 디자인 컴퓨팅 전문가 과정에 입문하는 특화된 주제를 다룬다.
DIGITAL MODELING 2017
This course provides methodologies empowering students to mobilize new media and ICT technologies in creative ways for their architectural design works. The conceptual framework is based on the role evolution of digital models: Representation-Generation-Virtualization (RGV). State-of-the-art digital tools and modeling / visualization techniques are explored along with thematic exercises corresponding to the framework of RGV evolution. Students are also expected to understand and effectively integrate the BIM and digital fabrication techniques to understand the significance of virtualization stage.
Major topics are delivered by weekly lectures and workshops. At the beginning, students will learn essential parametric design skills to represent a cerebral image into a virtual object. The second step will focus on the dialogue between the designer’s intuition and the computational. It will help students refine their digital modeling skills so that they command the form making process with parametric design tools. The simulation tool, such as daylight, FEM and CFD will provide the performance-wise justification for the evolving form. The form-finding strategy is explored in depth for the final project. Topics include agent-based design, genetic algorithm, swarm particle optimization. Thus, students will learn how to cope with design problems like lighting, noise, circulation, visibility with digital tools. Then, they will be able to transform the problems into an optimized form generation strategy by orchestrating parametric design, performance simulation and optimization techniques.
