Digital Topographies of Form 2.0
@ ITU Architectural Design Computing
Course Coordinator: Asst. Prof. Dr. Ayşegül Akçay Kavakoğlu
The course examines past and contemporary digital design theory and practice approaches to enable a critical discussion on the current state of digital design, computation and representation concerning the quest of the form in design and architecture. It focuses on the evolving meanings of form by discussing the paradigmatic shifts in architecture that occurred via technological developments. The course covers critical discussions on the topics such as morphology, topology, computation and aesthetics concerning form generation, representation and production. Reading materials cover book chapters and research articles by architects, researchers, and designers. Workshops and guest speakers will support the course to foster the discussions.
