Computational Design

We are designers, planners and inventors, not only using digital design tools available on the market today, but also actively contributing to, devising and creating future processes and technologies.

Computers have had a remarkable and lasting influence on the way we work in architecture, as communication, design and construction implements, but also as a virtual extension to our physical world. The tools and projects developed by our students are as varied and innovative as their creators.

We provide an interdisciplinary, theoretical and practical understanding of designing and planning in a digital environment, exploring themes such as design, human-computer-interaction, digital fabrication, communication, public participation, information visualisation, city planning, and learning.

The Computational Design Mentorship is aimed at Architecture Master Students.

Focus Areas:

  • Digital Design Decision Support
    Computer based information systems to support design and decision-taking processes.
  • Digital Manufacturing
    Integrative approach to manufacturing, centred on computer systems.
  • BIM | Building Information Modelling
    The process of creating and managing digital information models representing physical and functional characteristics of buildings.


  • At least one project at the Chair of Architectural Informatics,
  • At least two seminars at the Chair of Architectural Informatics,
  • Exposé for the Master Thesis (a semester before the thesis, 3 ECTS),
  • Master Thesis at the Chair of Architectural Informatics (30 ECTS).
