Parametric Design in Planning and Landscape

Designing from urban data mining

The reading of the territory is becoming more complex, the number of elements, indices, information, layers that are involved… are increasing. This course's aim is immersion in the analysis and the staging of various parameters, from the point of view of what is reported to us about the city or region. By modifying these parameters,we can,change the city or territory.

By inserting the current dynamism to the project of the city or territory, we change the parameters as well as how they can impact us. How we draw it, and to which direction the project pushes us.

Water, vegetation, infiltration / permeability, topography, infrastructure, density, uses. How we can parameterize these concepts and how they can help us in the design process. It will be a journey where the end point will depend on the student's work as well as the findings of the joint working group, where a node affects the rest of the structure.
