The Design Computation Summer School 2018 is an initiative of the Design and Computation Group (DCG) of Faculdade de Arquitetura, University of Lisbon. It will be a space for discussing new ideas and new applications of advanced concepts in architecture and urbanism by exploring the given tools and methods. The main idea of this set of workshops is to share advanced knowledge on the related subjects and get feedback from the participants.

We expect to grow our network of highly specialized researchers and expand the use of our methods and tools by providing a hands-on experience.

The workshops are also a response to frequent contacts we had for sharing our tools. As most tools are still under development we thought that sharing in a structured workshop format would not just provide the knowledge but also could allow contributions and eventual future collaborations with the participants. We are therefore both sharing and networking.

The Design Computing Summer School 2018 will take place from June 25 to July 6, at Faculdade de Arquitetura, Universidade de Lisboa.

The workshop topics are:

#1 – Structural Weaving

#2 – Immersive and Responsive Environments

#3 – Web scraping and Data Mining

#4 – Capturing Walkability (new methods)
