Courses

THE UNIVERSITY OF NEW SOUTH WALES
Year : 2017
Focus: Computational Design + Adaptive Architecture
Digital Collaboration Studio #CODE3100

The Digital Collaboration Studio is design-based course. A main investigation topic called the ‘Grand Narrative’ interconnects all courses in the graduation year and this course is the starting point into a specialised investigation. This year the ‘Grand Narrative’ is about ‘Design Performance’. In this new information and data driven design era, the paradigm of performance-based design can be approached very broadly and it spans on multiple realms, from spatial, social and cultural to purely technical (structural, thermal, acoustical, and/or computational)...

UNIVERSITY OF SYDNEY
Year : 2016
Focus: Algorithmic Architecture + Data-driven design
Algorithmic Architecture 

In Algorithmic Architecture, modelling is construed as an explicit formulation of architectural design problem and opportunities. This includes defining design logic and parameter as well as converting data into meaningful information for design analysis and synthesis. Students will be exposed to various computational design methods and a series of digital design exercises to develop their understanding on the basic principles in architectural computing. This unit is core to the Bachelor of Architecture and Engineering...

THE UNIVERSITY OF NEW SOUTH WALES
Year : 2016
Focus: Data-driven design, Performance driven design 
Design Information Management #CODE2270

This course is part of the practice orientated teaching trajectory combining  optimisation and decision support in BIM Modelling. The course focuses on data driven design and optimisation, to apply systems that analyse existing conditions, support planning decisions, improve performance, increase efficiency and achieve financial savings. Students will engage in debate about findings in architecture design, environmental engineering, finance, and science to study how information can drive design in the built environment...

THE UNIVERSITY OF MELBOURNE
Year : 2014
Focus: Computational and interactive design 
NSpace ( Master Studio)

Algorithmic approaches to architecture have arguably existed since the Ancient Greeks used golden rectangles in the proportions of the Parthenon. Modern technology has increased the complexity of computation in design and, with the rapid changes of both technology and application in design over the last several decades, the question arises of how digital architecture outcomes can remain relevant in an evolving context. Studio members will seek
to address this question within their own work by exploring responsiveness, adaptability, and scale in algorithmic approaches to and digital workflows in design...

THE UNIVERSITY OF MELBOURNE
Year : 2014
Focus: Computational and parametric design
Computational Habitats ( Master Studio)

Computational strategies have become established drivers of design innovation. An inherent process of algorithmic design is the decomposition of a problem into subproblems which may be tackled within a framework. Computational Habitats will take this approach to its brief, and will look at site analysis as a problem generator. Students will be asked to identify, analyse, and decompose the major issues of the site and brief, and to use the resulting framework to guide creation of their own digital tools and workflow to find unique solutions for the design problem and create innovative responses...

ROYAL MELBOURNE INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY
Year : 2012
Focus: Building Information Modelling
Integrate Digital Applications Into Architectural
Workflows

This unit of competency specifies the outcomes required to use a range of digital applications in architectural workflows. It includes the ability to determine the appropriate digital applications required for specific project outputs and the application of architectural standards and conventions to produce and manage the project. Work is likely to be undertaken with limited supervision and in consultation with team members and external consultants.

THE GERMAN JORDANIAN UNIVERSITY
Year : 2009
Focus: Architecture design
Heritage Oriented Sustainability

In this era, it is considered a pedagogic challenge to raise architectural student’s awareness towards the convenient approach to sustainability that emphasizes the uniqueness and sensitivity of local environment, communities and culture.For introducing the concept of Heritage Oriented Sustainability to 3rd year architectural students, a pedagogic experimental course was designed at German Jordanian University to approach this concept.The pedagogic design process is expected to expose students to understand, think and work in three major aspects: sustainability, heritage and environment
