Design Computation Symposium

AU had a great start with the symposium that addressed several direction in development of computational design. Informative sessions by the leaders in the advanced use of computation tools shed some light on the future of digital media its role within anthropocentric reality.

Notable lecture were given by prof. Dr. Kristina Shea on integration of knowledge management and generative design and fabrication, Jos Stam on Unified Dynamic Solver used in CG apps to simulate physical effects in a dynamic systems and Prof. Joe Clark of University of Strathclyde on Building Performance Simulation and the need for a unified model approach required for the whole building energy analysis.
