Digital design is driven by thinking in structures and systems, translated in pattern of order and their interaction. The joint SUTD + AALTO studio is an introduction into such design thinking and emphasises the exploration of spatial organisational pattern, in various levels of abstraction and scale through the integration of computational methods and workflows.
The studio in spring is part of a collaboration with Aalto University (Helsinki, Finland) and will explore the role of hawker centres as civic spaces in Singapore. Within the studio, computational methods and techniques will be developed to study the relation between the centre and the city across scales and its underlying flows of different data streams like, people, material and culture, passive thermodynamic strategies urban green.
Students participated in an exchange to Finland during Recess Week.
