Performative Modelling (edX)
Course Auditing
This course focuses on evaluating alternative spatial configurations to support evidence-based decision making. You will learn methods for calculating various spatial performance metrics related to the built environment that can be used for comparative analysis of design options.

Generative Modelling (edX)

This course focuses on generating spatial information models capturing various relationships and constraints. You will learn a set of advanced modelling techniques for generating spatial models. You will create multiple procedures that annotate and query your models using attribute data. By the end of the course, you will be [...]

Procedural Modelling (edX)

This course will focus on the fundamentals of procedural programming for generating spatial models. You will learn how to code, using functions, data structures and control-flow statements. You will create procedures to generate geometric models with attribute data. By the end of the course, you will be able to [...]
