Parametric Design Applications: Parametric Passive Design

Course Code : PDA 101

Course Hours : 30 hours


Course Description

This course provides basic knowledge about passive design strategies, and an introduction to Parametric Design tools and applications. The course provides insights to developing technical tools based on reverse engineering technology, and presents examples of parametric facade designs. The parametric logics with (Rhinoceros) and (Grasshopper), as well as the performance simulation tool (DIVA) are introduced with applications on fa├žade design, day lighting and thermal simulation.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, the participant will be able to:

  • Extend the knowledge of Passive design
  • Identify the differences between using parametric design and using conventional CAD methods
  • Create 3D designs using Rhinoceros and parametric designs using Grasshopper the visual scripting interface for Rhino
  • Explore and visualize 3D concepts with a powerful set of intuitive design tools.
  • Employ editing features and productivity tools
  • Evaluate thermal designs using DIVA
  • Communicate designs
  • Evaluate designs
