open meeting 11 – design process from start – end with computation and parametrics
//about the event
“design process from start -> end with computation and parametrics” a discussion with Jason Smith AIA – core leader of the chicago computation group and Design Architect at Smith Group Chicago- presenting current built projects of his firm that utilized a suite of computational tools and analytics during the earliest design phases through construction.
//about the speaker
Jason Smith (AIA) is a Design and Project Architect with SmithGroupJJR. His focus is on design process, performance + evidence-driven design, and design execution. His interests and experience in computation and parameter-based modeling are rooted in environmental, energy, thermal, and wind analyses; using or creating tools that provide immediate feedback which allows the designer to make informed, intelligent decisions; and the rationalization, fabrication, and construction of complex geometries and forms.
