Computational technology is rapidly developing. It provides strong capabilities to change the way we act, think, communicate and interact in real life. The goal of the Algorithm Summer School is to provide students with a new digital paradigm in design and architecture and make them able to gain practical experience on future trends of computational architecture, generative design, algorithmic analysis, design optimization, digital fabrication, and smart kinetic systems.
