Info. Modeling & SimulationCollege of Architecture
Introduction to the theory and practice of digital information modeling and simulation within an architectural context. This coursework will introduce types of information and structuring-methods that are employed in the generative and performative modeling, simulation and analysis used in current multidisciplinary practice. Students will utilize contemporary digital software tools and other targeted applications to develop foundational skills in basic building information modeling and manipulation, parametric modeling, scripting, simulation and analysis methods, as necessary for support of subsequent courses in design and technical systems. Coursework visualizes spatialized information as interactive, structured and manipulable in relation to current practice and society.
