Conferences & Workshops


on "Parameric Tools and Computational Design in Architecture."

Under the Aegis of Council of Architecture’s Training Research Centre, COA-TRC Bhopal, and VES College of Architecture, Mumbai, is jointly organizing 08 Day National Online Short Term Training Program on the topic “Parametric Tools and Computational Design in Architecture” from 01st April 2023 to 23rd April 2023, 01 PM to 04 PM.


An algorithm-based method merging the design intent with the design outcome is being explored world-wide, which is commonly called as Parametric Design or Computational Design. Design thinking and parametric modelling approach help rationalise complex design problems into geometry, which can be further analysed for their performance and optimised using various computational techniques. Such research and industry-oriented field of design can be best learnt through practical training and interaction with the experts in the industry.

In this context, the national online short term training program on “Parametric Tools and Computational Design in Architecture” is curated with a focus on implementing the design projects using parametric design thinking. The workshop includes a presentation on understanding the topic, hands-on software training, and interaction with industry experts who will be presenting their approach of research and practice.

This will be an introductory training program of 24 hours, scheduled over April month only during Saturdays and Sundays [01:00 PM to 04:00 PM].  The medium of instruction will be in English and comprises of 8 modules. Hands-on sessions are planned for effective learning and practice of the modules.

The learnings from this program shall help the participants to integrate and implement the knowledge in their respective academic and professional domains.
