ARCH 6380.80 - Environmental Parametrics


The work of this course sets out to describe the meaning, values, and methods of using parametric techniques as both an analytical tool and a generative device in comprehensive performance-based building design. The students learn techniques to set-up feedback between analysis and tactical response in performance-based design while also situating these techniques within the broader discourse and methodology of fostering design ecologies and creating ecologies of design as they relate to the construction of the built environment and contemporary issues of sustainability. In addition to the practical concerns of environmental parametrics, this course will examine closely the theoretical foundation for environmental parametrics.

When Offered: Fall term annually.
