Course Objectives 1. To examine spatial analysis techniques in urban and building scale,
2. To use the digital tools to visualize these analyzes
3. To develop algorithmic thinking skills.
4. To focus on computational analysis techniques as a design parameter,
by undertaking conceptual and practical studies.
Course Description Computational Space Analysis course focuses on the methods of spatial analysis; space layout planning, space syntax, wayfinding; user movements and accessibility, and the contribution of space accessibility and criteria to the field of design in terms of spatial analysis of the city or building scale.
Course Outcomes 1. To learn spatial analysis techniques, 2. To be able to apply spatial analysis techniques in digital environment, 3. To learn spatial techniques and apply them on built examples, 4. To be able to evaluate space design in this context by learning the concept and techniques of wayfinding.
5. To be able to use spatial analysis as a generative tool.
