Computational Environmental and Energy Design - Workshop on the integration of parametric and generative design methodologies with environmental and energy simulations for architecture and planning.
Target group The workshop is fully funded and is addressed to students of architecture and civil engineering faculties at master level from Estonia (11 seats), Latvia (3 seats), Lithuania (3 seats) and Sweden (3 seats). The selected students will have full scholarship that will include travel, board and lodging in Tallinn for 10 days (arrival on Sunday 03.07.2016 departure on Wednesday 13.07.2016). The workshop is funded by the NORDPLUS programme of the Nordic Council of Ministers (NCM) - Higher Education objective.
Description The use of digital and computational design tools is increasingly important for the activity of design and research for architects and engineers. It permits to integrate environmental and energy aspects from the very early stages of the design and planning process to achieve more performative, efficient and integrated buildings and urban environments. The workshop attendants will broaden their design and technical knowledge with solar design, daylighting and energy efficiency topics and will learn how to integrate environmental analysis and building performance analysis tools with parametric and generative methodologies in architecture and planning.
