This program targets firm principals, studio leaders, and other professional staff focused on innovative approaches to design. This presentation will discuss how DesignScript is addressing these issues and will include a walkthrough of the recently released version available on Autodesk Labs.

Computational design is well established as an essential aspect of innovative architectural design, building engineering and digital fabrication. As we move to the second generation tools, new challenges are emerging: How to make computational design tools which are suitable for a range of programming skills from the novice to the expert? How to build systems that scale from simple to complex projects? How to progress from discipline specific applications to tools that support multi-disciplinary design collaboration at a computational level?

Robert Aish is a Director of Software development at Autodesk responsible for the development of DesignScript. He previously developed Generative Components at Bentley and is a co-founder of SmartGeometry. He is a graduate of the Royal College of Art, London and has a Ph.D. in human computer interaction.
