4.564 Design Scripting


Class Info

Introduces fundamental ideas of computer programming and demonstrates their application to the process of visual and spatial design. Teaches methods for algorithmically modeling visual and spatial forms, evaluating their conditions, building interface, and processing formal data for prototyping, manufacturing, rendering, and other design tools. Proceeds through a sequence of scripting exercises in application programming environments. Each exercise requires a student to articulate computational tasks in the context of a design, and to write codes that produce graphic solutions. Additional work required of students taking the graduate version.

This class has no prerequisites.
