Computational Design – From Promise to Practice

Computational design is an emergent discipline that operates at the intersection of computer science, engineering, and design knowledge to develop new strategies, tools, methods and workflows in and for the conceptualization and construction of the built environment. While computational design thinking and methods are widely argued to be troubling and transforming long-standing ways of working in the architecture, engineering and construction industries, the shift from promise to practice remains a challenge.

This book documents the unique nexus of research and practice collaborations that form the basis of the Computational Design Education and Research programme at the University of New South Wales, Sydney. The diversity of projects and positions outlined in this publication contributes to advancing computational design as an interdisciplinary pursuit that is capable of innovatively addressing real-world built environment problems and opportunities through collaborative human-machine thought and action.

The editors: Associate Professor M. Hank Haeusler is the founder and Discipline Director of the Bachelor of Computational Design— the world’s first undergraduate degree in Computational Design— at the Built Environment Faculty at the University of New South Wales. He is also Professor at the Central Academy of Fine Arts Beijing; Vice President of the Media Architecture Institute. Dr. Nicole Gardner is an architect, lecturer, and Associate Director of Education in Computational Design at the Built Environment Faculty at the University of New South Wales, where she also leads the computational design theory stream.

Theory and practice of a groundbreaking and emergent technology, including case studies by leading researchers: BIM modeling, digital fabrication, smart cities, responsive enviroment, gaming.
