Students developed proposals for a flexible cultural building as a ‘Gateway to the City’ on a site along West Terrace.
Advanced parametric design tools were used and integrated with industry standard BIM documentation tools to develop and detail the proposals.
The emphasis of the course has been on the structural strategy and envelope detailing.
The course was taught together with structural engineers and students employed both rules of thumb as well as digital tools for structural analysis and optimisation.
