Abstract / Description of output

The paper presents and raises discussion on a new pedagogical approach, that com- bines computational modelling with careful use of precedent in architectural and engineering ed- ucation. This study is a part of a larger PhD research project investigating the workflows of the rationalization of form from the initial design phase to realization of structure, manufacturing and assembly. A range of efficiency criteria has been formulated and discussed to enable the deriva- tion of a methodology to analyze and reevaluate existing complex forms through the use of learn- ings from precedent. A series of projects have been evaluated. This paper presents a re-evaluation of the Dynamic Earth project in Edinburgh serving as an exemplar project to facilitate a novel pedagogy being tested and implemented through a research project
