DArch Graduates Design Research is Published in Caadria

Alice Sandstrom, who received her DArch degree in May 2019, and Associate Professor Hyoung-June Park published their co-authored paper titled “Reflection in Action – An educational indie video game with design schema” in the proceedings of the 24th Annual Conference of the Association for Computer-Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia (CAADRIA).

The paper outlines the development of an educational indie video game in which a set of design rules are generated as a schema from player actions with the spatial components of architectural precedents in a given library. Each player’s outcome is scored with its comparison to the functional sequences of the original precedent and its formal arrangement. The implementation of the proposed game within UNITY is introduced.
