Summer School SAPPK 2018

Summer School SAPPK 2018 is a special two-weeks program initiated by Architecture Program, School of Architecture, Planning and Policy Development, Institut Teknologi Bandung, Indonesia.
This program will explore new approaches and methods in the design process, harnessing the advancement of digital tools applied to and assist in architectural and built environment design and planning. The aim is to introduce and embrace a new way of iterative tooling mechanism, enabling the coherent interplay of material, technology, and architectural form – the Digital Tectonics.


The program goal is to introduce and provide students with set of knowledge, understanding, and skills of computational design for architectural design process of synthesis and analysis.


Summer School will focus on computational design methods as a new paradigm on architecture and built environment design. This topic will be discussed through lecture series and workshops. The lecture series will address the following topics:

  • Generative and Evolutionary Methods
  • Physical Prototyping and Digital Fabrication
  • Urban Modeling and Simulation
  • Bioclimatic Design and Evidence-based Analysis

While the workshops will be conducted into two topics:

Workshop 1: Digital Tooling & Algorithmic-based Form Finding and Optimization

Workshop 2: Environmental Modeling and Simulation


Several prominent speakers will be the keynote lecturers and facilitators including:

Prof. Patrick Janssen- National University of Singapore, Singapore
Assoc. Prof. Bige Tuncer- Singapore University of Technology and Design, Singapore
Prof. Teng-Wen Chan- Yunlin National University of Science and Technology, Taiwan
Asst. Prof. Hamid Montazeri- Eindhoven University of Technology, Netherlands
Olivier Dambron, M. Sc- Architectural Association, London, United Kingdom
Dr. Agus Hariyadi- Universitas Gajah Mada, Indonesia
Dr. Erry Djunaedy-Telkom University, Indonesia
Aswin Indraprastha, PhD- Institut Teknologi Bandung, Indonesia
Dr. Eng Donny Koerniawan- Institut Teknologi Bandung, Indonesia


Participants is undergraduate (3rd year and above) and graduate students. We are open for students from various department including Architecture, Architectural Engineering, Urban Design, Urban and regional Planning, Interior Design, Industrial Design, Engineering Physics, Landscape Architecture.
