This course investigates the making of computational methods, models, tools and analysis for creativity, design and cognition. The seminar engages in readings and discussions about the nature and studies of creativity and design cognition, ranging from the literature of design thinking and methods, representations and theories on design, models and computational support for creativity, design process and collaboration.
Specifically, the course objectives are to:
– Build knowledge of the fields of design computation, creativity and design cognition – including methods, models and tools
– Provide an understanding of the role that computational models can play in creative design
– Develop basic analytical and computational interests and skills for design, cognition and creativity
