Post Parametric 2: Demo / Futures of Computing and Design

As parametric modeling software and parametric thinking become fully integrated into architectural design, the next phase of digital innovation will come from entirely new techniques and technologies.

Cloud computing, directable simulation, self-modeling buildings, and personal supercomputing will suggest new ways to think and to design. In this panel, experts from research and industry will demo and discuss these innovations, exploring how we might be designing architecture ten years from now.

Post Parametric 2 is the second in a series of events that aim to question, broaden, and re-frame the way we think about computing and design.


Jonathan Cohen (Senior Research Scientist, NVIDIA) Eitan Grinspun (Director of Computer Graphics Group and Associate Professor of Computer Science, Columbia University) Hod Lipson (Associate Professor of Mechanical/Aerospace Engineering and Computing and Information Science, Cornell University) Miko Matsumura (VP and Chief Strategist, Software AG) Makai Smith (Product Manager, GenerativeComponents, Bentley Systems) Moderated by David Benjamin (GSAPP and The Living) and Michael Reed (Columbia Computer Science and Blue Sky Studios)

Debate is this Monday, April 12, at 6:30pm in Avery Hall, Wood Auditorium, GSAPP, Columbia University.
