3D courseware

VIPA demo video about Blender

VIPA’s courseware presents a novel method to teach students of architecture the fundamentals of computational design. It presents several canonical examples from the fields of generative algorithms, with AI and AL as simulations running within an interactive 3-D environment.

Students can observe the simulations, navigate through them and change the parameters that define and control them, thereby developing an understanding for the rules that govern their virtual environments. They can also change the geometry used in the simulations and work with and export their output.

Finally, students whose curricula include programming can modify the simulations at the code level, combine them, make them aware of each other or write entirely new simulations.

There are three levels of interaction:
