About Computational Design

Who is a Computational Designer?

A computational designer uses data-driven processes like automation, parametric modelling, and generative design to create complex geometric forms and optimise design workflows. While designers traditionally rely on intuition and experience to solve design problems, computational designers can enhance that process by encoding design decisions using a computer language.

Today, computational design finds application far beyond the AEC industry, including product design, gaming experience and Metaverse design, automation and robotics; and automobile design.
