Architectural Computation

This programme provides a comprehensive understanding of the skills required to create generative, emergent and responsive forms, through exposure to real programming environments.

Entry requirements

The normal minimum qualifications are a 2nd Class Honours degree from a UK university or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard. Some basic computing experience is expected. A second acceptable qualification is a degree of lower than 2nd Class Honours standard, or an equivalent overseas qualification, in a subject appropriate to the programme, plus extensive background and experience in the field. The latter implies considerable experience as a professional at a senior level. For applicants without a 1st degree or full professional membership, but with relevant and substantial work experience in the field, a special qualifying examination may be set.

Course modules

Modules include: Computational analysis; computational synthesis; design as a knowledge-based process; introduction to programming for architecture and design; morphogenetic programming. Optional modules include: embodied and embedded technologies; digital interaction.

Assessment methods

Assessment is through unseen examination, coursework (including 3000-word essay, learning log, digitally fabricated piece and documentation, short video piece, and physical piece with video documentation), practical exercises and the dissertation.
