City Information Modelling

    The Design and Computation Group focuses on a new method for urban planning and design which is based on the use of patterns and design rules in conjunction with multivariable geographical, economic and demographic data. The aim of the method is to facilitate dialogue between the different participants in the design process and enable the development of flexible urban plans, capable of responding to changes in context throughout its implementation. The group is dedicated to develop tools to support urban design decisions, specifically the use of parametric design tools to model urban design problems and to share the theories underlying the aforementioned method among the students of the Faculty of Architecture.
