Computational design is an evolving discipline that operates at the intersection of computer science, engineering, and design. It helps designers leverage technology to develop new strategies, tools, methods, and workflows for thinking about and creating the built environment. While computational design thinking and methods are considered transformative in the architecture, engineering and construction industries, the shift from promise to practice remains a challenge.This book documents the nexus of research and practical collaborations that form the basis of the Computational Design Education and Research program at the University of New South Wales, Australia. The diversity of projects outlined in this publication contributes to advancing an understanding of computational design as an interdisciplinary field that is capable of innovatively addressing real-world built environment challenges.
