Taught by architects and experts in artificial intelligence, these programmes equip students with the skills to create generative and responsive forms, through exposure to programming environments.
How will tomorrow’s built environment be designed and constructed? Taught by architects, experts in artificial intelligence and human computer interaction, this programme equips students with the skills to create generative and responsive forms, through exposure to real programming environments. Architectural Computation belongs to the school's suite of B-Pro programmes, which focus on advanced digital design and computation.
Throughout either an MSc or MRes degree, students develop the depth of understanding needed to exploit computation to create innovative architectural solutions for the future. Students are taught programming skills alongside advanced theory and work in teaching groups called research clusters to undertake studio-based research in their chosen area of the discipline.
The programmes culminate in the annual B-Pro Show – an exhibition of student work attracting thousands of visitors to the school’s central London home.
- Learn computational design skills for application at the highest levels of architecture, design, research and industry
- Conduct scientific research that could change the way the built environment is designed, constructed and used
- Share expertise and work with tutors and students across B-Pro, establishing collaborations for the development of unique multi-disciplinary research projects
Students on both Architectural Computation MSc and MRes complete a total of 180 credits throughout their programme. For those studying the MSc, this is split into 120 credits of modules and a dissertation worth 60 credits. Students on the MRes programme take 60 credits of optional modules, complete a dissertation worth 90 credits and a Computational Research Project worth 30 credits.
- Computational Research Project (30 credits)
Module coordinator: Dr Sean Hanna
Students learn how to use computation as a research tool in order to develop their initial research questions. Through their research, they develop skills in programming and computational modelling, alongside data manipulation and system design. To assist them in their studies, students may attend lectures, seminars and studios from relevant Architectural Computation modules that are appropriate to their research subject: Creative Complexity – Digital Studio, Creative Complexity – Digital Ecology and and Embedded and Embodied Technologies: City as Interface are recommended.
- Adaptive Architecture and Computation: Extended Dissertation (90 credits)
Module coordinator: Prof Sean Hanna
Building on their research from the Computational Research Project, students complete an extended research project involving computational systems in architecture. They critically interpret their research results and compose a summary of scientific achievements, supported by discussions with their supervisor. Students have the opportunity to develop an advanced understanding of the planning, execution, monitoring, delivery and interpretation of research in the design or analysis of architecture.
- Design as a Knowledge-Based Process (15 credits)
Students develop an advanced understanding of theories of design as a knowledge-based process and learn about a range of concepts suggesting how the nature of design may itself become the object of research. They explore design practice, the nature of collaboration, machine intelligence and creativity, investigating contrasting perspectives in architecture, theories of scientific knowledge, linguistics, social theory and theories of technology. Students learn to think reflectively about themselves as practitioners, considering design as a knowledge domain with a particular knowledge base, rather than in terms of a tacit community of practice.
- Computational Synthesis (15 credits)
Module coordinator: Prof Philippe Morel
Students explore a range of algorithmic techniques used for generating architecture, from parametric modelling to generative methods based on procedural rules. They explore the potential for computation to be used to enhance architectural process, and gain an appreciation of cutting-edge techniques, so that they can form a basis for future research.
- Computational Analysis (15 credits)
Module coordinator: Prof Sean Hanna
Students develop a complex theoretical understanding of the creation of architecture through the generative methods presented within the Computational Synthesis module. They explore how the computational analysis of space, structure and other aspects of architecture facilitates an understanding of the complexities of the built environment.
- Morphogenetic Programming (15 credits)
Module coordinator: Martha Tsigkari
Through a series of type-along coding sessions, students gain an understanding of the construction of parametric and generative structures. They focus on learning algorithmic implementation in detail, through advanced programming techniques that directly relate to design problems and the built environment. At the same time, students are encouraged to think about how form and structure may adapt to its context, and in particular, how architecture may evolve through its occupation.
- Introduction to Programming for Architecture and Design (15 credits)
Module coordinators: Martha Tsigkari, Vasileios Papalexopoulos and Stamatios Psarras
Students learn about computer programming through simple material related to design and architecture. They learn computer science for design and gain an understanding of computational processes that will help them with complicated design challenges, such as the theory of computing, mathematics for design and computer graphics. Students are given the opportunity to develop programmes to achieve set goals, with a focus on understanding the programming concepts which need to be applied.
- Built Environment Dissertation (60 credits)
Module coordinators: Prof Sean Hanna
With one-to-one support from their personal supervisor, students plan and conduct a 10,000-word research dissertation on a topic of their choosing. They develop skills in researching literature databases, reading and critically evaluating publications, and presenting a written and oral report of their work.
- Embedded & Embodied Technologies: The Body as an Interface (15 credits)
Module coordinator: Ava Fatah gen. Schieck
Students consider the body as a medium and design material. They explore the concepts and processes of embodiment and embedding and approach the themes of ‘Body Movement and Space Perception’, gaining an insight into bio-sensing, gesture, movement and affective computing. Building on this, students are asked to conduct creative and detailed explorations, explore their own body and its subjective space and the space of potential ‘performative’ interactions in the following relationships: person to person, person to digital, and physical to digital space.
Moreover, students may investigate the effects of digital technologies in design on the nature of design collaboration and are encouraged to work across performative and creative multidisciplinary approaches, where concepts from architectural space, body movement, performance, improvisation techniques, and interaction design come together.
- Embedded & Embodied Technologies: The City as an Interface (30 credits)
Module coordinator: Ava Fatah gen. Schieck
Students investigate the concepts and processes of embedding and embodiment within public space, and how this engages with the social agenda and the various aspects of mediation and participation in the networked city. They conduct creative explorations into the space of potential interactions, through urban prototyping and playful interventions (using AR, MR, situated interactive installations or IoT) informed by real‐time data and interactions and/or historical data.
- Creative Complexity: Digital Studio (15 credits)
Module coordinator: Valentina Soana
Students gain an understanding of the issues that emerge when dealing with complex, computationally generated data for an intended creative output. They learn the complex patterns and behaviours of dynamic systems and learn to create rich, organised structures with desirable performance and aesthetic properties, considering the role of the human designer in this process.
- Creative Complexity: Digital Ecologies (30 credits)
Module coordinators: Vishu Bhooshan and Tommaso Casucci
Students explore the issues that emerge when transforming complex, computationally generated data into a physical or virtual deliverable. They learn about advances in computational technology, such as the development of general-purpose computing using graphic processing units, which allow personal computers to read levels of performance that were only previously available at specialist facilities. They also investigate how computational fabrication, as well as virtual, mixed and augmented reality, can create complex computer designs.
