A Master-level design course at the University of Melbourne, the Performative Architecture Studio explores the concepts and techniques of digital architectural design including complex geometries, complex systems and interactivity. It challenges contemporary understandings of creativity and enables its participants to explain and defend their design decisions.
Among other things, the studio introduces:
1. Architecture as performances (events, narratives or play);
2. Emergence in design;
3. Parametric modelling/associative geometry/form-finding/complex geometry;
4. Digital fabrication/construction;
5. Real-time digital sensing/computer vision; and
6. Augmented/responsive/interactive environments.
