2023 Spring MO Seminar

4.6(Thu) 16:00 – Prof. Kyung-Hoon Hyun / Hyungjun Park (Department of Interior Architecture Design, Hanyang University/School of Architecture,University of Hawaii at Manoa)

■ Title: Computational design and forms of computational support
■ Date: 4.6 (Thu) 16:00
■ Venue: Munji Campus, L409
  • Subtopic 1: Computational Design & Design Automation
  • Speaker: Professor Kyung-Hoon Hyun (Department of Interior Architecture Design, Hanyang University)
  • Abstract: Computational design is defined as the process of quantitatively designing a product, space, or system, and usually refers to the process of developing new ideas and technologies through computational thinking in the design process. Through the extensive exploration provided by computational design-based automation methods, new and creative perspectives that could not be confirmed by humans can be proposed. This study introduces research that develops methods to understand, assist, automate, and supplement the design process through computational support.
  • Subtopic 2: Analytical Design Process
  • Speaker: Professor Hyungjun Park (School of Architecture, University of Hawaii at Manoa)
  • Abstract: When design is defined as problem-solving, especially with a focus on solution, the Double Diamond Model developed by the Design Council helps designers conceptualize and design the right thing in an iterative cycle of divergence and convergence. To enable implementation. Various computation supports that take into account the relationship between designers and computers have also been developed to perform typical computation approaches (generation, evaluation, selection, and integration) within a given design process. However, a review of a series of current computation-supported systems applied to various designer-computer interactions shows that the number of “wicked and ill-structured problems” is increasing and that the unlimited computational power brought about by artificial intelligence (AI) has recently become a problem in everyday life. Indicates that the double diamond design model has limitations in performing design activities that are parallel and dynamic instead of sequential through designer-computer interaction. Therefore, there is a need to switch to changing computational approaches (generation, search, evaluation, selection, and refinement). This seminar will explore the results of a review of support systems for designer-computer interaction, directions for new design processes that can adapt to these changes, and computational support methods that can be used appropriately and developed effectively.</li >
