Seminar + Workshop “Design through Systems Thinking Informed by Materials” . 01

I gave a seminar and run a workshop* titled “Design through Systems Thinking Informed by Materials” at the Istanbul Technical University, Graduate School of Architecture as a part of the course Computer Application in Architecture.

AIM:

The proposed approach aims to create a method based on systems thinking by referencing nature in order to generate a funda­mental base of computational design. Students should explore design through material systems in a holistic manner. By integrating systems thinking to the design process, in which the rules and relationship among system elements are defined at the beginning of the design process, most efficient solutions are generated by the system itself. Students are asked to test this method on a façade solution.
