Digital technologies are changing the way built environments are designed, constructed and inhabited.
The built environments of the future will be interactive and adaptable: buildings, cities and landscapes that respond to change. That means smart homes, healing hospitals, green neighbourhoods, places where digital technology and physical space work in harmony.
On this course you’ll gain the theoretical knowledge and acquire the design skills needed to develop digital blueprints for the environments of the future.
In our Interactive Digital Design Studio, you’ll work on design projects and learn techniques such as mixed reality modelling, integrated environment simulation and digital fabrication. Optional subjects include renewable energy and advanced computational design.
As well as workshops and seminars there are guest lectures from professionals and academics at the forefront of interactive digital design.
