2019S, Vorlesung und Übungen (VU), 2.0 semester hours, course number S01202

Description

This course teaches techniques of computer programming that are specifically useful for architects.

It combines the following broad topics:

  • Graphics Programming via Processing / Java (http://www.processing.org)
  • Rhino / Grasshopper Component Development via C#
  • Exchanging information between these systems

During the semester, we will integrate these various systems so that we may leverage the different functionalities programmatically.

Examination Modalities

At the end of the semester, students will be required to participate in a group exercise.

The grade will be given based on the initiative that is taken during classes, the general participation of the student as well as the quality of the final group work.

Comments

The language of the course will be English, although some assistance may be provided in German and Polish.
