Seminar: Computational Feminism: Searching for Cyborgs

Channel: College of Design

4:00 pm - 5:00 pm @ 1030 Morrill

Computational design is a field within architecture that leverages computing, data and machines to advance the aesthetic and performative qualities of the built environment. As the field matures, architects must address an increasing number of cultural, political and ethical dimensions, particularly in technical roles. This presentation examines the gender gap in computational design and proposes an agenda to achieve gender equality in this area.
