A catalog of Urban Interventions: Investigation through Digital Design Architecture Studio
This paper discusses the explorations of an architectural studio conducted with the use of digital and parametric tools. It was intended to find a new studio framework for digital architectural expression, urban form-finding, and design methodology. Three different urban areas of Lahore have been selected to study their prevailing problems in detail. Students were then required to provide architectural solutions by initially exposing them to digital and parametric tools. Participants in this study were fourth-year architecture students who initiated by searching for the existing urban issues with the help of site surveys and interviews. Their proposed architectural solutions are based on applications that focused on the user's analysis of spatial perception. Their creation and exchange of ideas are reinforced by the rules of a design studio within a recurring design-investigation prototype. This paper confers three different interventions in the city and learning outcomes are gathered based on how a student has perceived, taken up the study and has finally come up with the proposed solution. A fleeting summary is provided of the theoretical part of the studio, in-class design exercises are discussed and the end product is visually illustrated. Outcomes of this study lead to propose a studio framework methodology for introducing digital and parametric tools.
