Generative Processes: Script Based Design Research in Contemporary Teaching Practice

Robert R. Neumayr & Michael Budig (Innsbruck), 2009.

This paper examines the results of an ongoing two-year long design research agenda, set up by the Department for Experimental Architecture (Prof. Patrik Schumacher (Zaha Hadid Architects)) at the University of Innsbruck (AT). Students investigated into script based and parametric design research shifting architectural design towards a new digital paradigm. In several iterations, innovative design processes were developed, tested and applied in different architectural scales, the urban scale, the building scale and the ergonomic scale. The paper evaluates and exemplifies the results of this research in the light of the current state of design theory and speculates about their implications for contemporary digital design practice.
