This webinar is sponsored by the Academy of Architecture for Health (AAH) on November 7, 2017 from 2–3pm ET. Earn 1.0 AIA LU/HSW. Generative design, a method of design investigation utilizing algorithmic or rule-based systems to generate automated digital outputs, is gaining importance within schools of architecture and the design software development community. Often paired with parametric modeling tools, generative design techniques allow rapid production, analysis, and visualization of design options based on varied data inputs. This session will present the concept of generative design using healthcare projects as case studies. Attendees will learn how the forefront of digital technology can shape the way programmers, planners, and designers approach healthcare design through cutting-edge research undertaken by Autodesk, Georgia Institute of Technology, and Perkins+Will. Learning objectives After participating in this webinar attendees will be equipped to: 1. Understand the history and principles of generative design and parametric modeling. 2. Discover the ways generative design can impact the future of healthcare design and planning. 3. Discuss ways to modify the programming and planning process to yield faster and more inclusive results. 4. Identify the research informing the use of new digital tools and technologies as they relate to the healthcare environment. The PowerPoint and PDF versions of the presentation and the Q&A document are available below for your viewing. #programming #healthcare #AcademyofArchitectureforHealth #architecture #planning #generativedesign #Webinars
