Course Content (Syllabus)
The course introduces the use of digital systems in design. A case study of a small design project is commenced, with focuses on different kinds of geometry and the projection of information from one representational scheme to another. Top-down and bottom-up digital design processes are addressed. The teaching presents various design systems focusing on the simulation of three-dimensional space and the design of dynamic environments.
