ARC 5340-5343 Design 7/8: Digital Design Studios | Fall 2015

Thomas Spiegelhalter

These studios focused on developing strategies and master plans for a new carbon-neutral Sports City International Multi-Sport Complex. The projects were developed with advanced parametric-algorithmic green building and cloud service modeling for carbon neutrality and climate change mitigation, which engaged the landscape, sports infrastructure and the city. Projects from both studios used real sites with real-world clients, and engaged in specific community issues. The design investigations included complex spatial interactions and crowd management solutions for events, programmatic design and code analysis, ethical issues and community objectives.
