Course Brief

Architecture has evolved, have you kept pace with the latest advances in the ACED Industry?

If you are curious to discover, 

  • How complex architectural forms are designed
  • The logic behind such architectural marvels
  • How you can develop your own computational thinking
  • How you can adapt Artificial Intelligence in form-finding

This course is for you. Here we aim to get you comfortable with the design thinking that goes behind parametric modelling and Artificial Intelligence in design. Through one-on- one live sessions, we make sure that you get the best learning experience and get all your doubts cleared. Once you understand the tools, you can get creative with them, and create all the marvels that your mind can conjure! (and based on our rich experience of tutoring in this field, we know that everyone can do it).

Course Outcome

Our vision at Acedge is to create a platform for students and professionals, where they can realise and absorb the true essence of computational design thinking and Artificial Intelligence. Parametricism is more than fancy forms and fluid architecture. Through this course, let's go back to the basics and learn

  • What is Computational Design?

  • How can you structure algorithmic logic?

  • How can you devise and visualize complex forms?

  • How can you design Generative Facades?

  • How to adapt Artificial Intelligence in form-finding?

Why should you take this course?

  • Master Rhino, Grasshopper, and other plugins from scratch.

  • Earn a Certificate upon completion

  • Get 1:1 guidance to create a project of your choice.

  • Quick query resolution through internal chat system and live classes.

  • Learn to create your own workflow using a professional method

  • Develop the design thinking process required to create complex geometry.

Course Mentor

Ar. Piyush Prajapati
Computational Urban Designers | Masters in Urban Design, UCL London 

Piyush is an architect and a computational urban designer working in Dubai. Born in India, he graduated from Government College of Architecture, Lucknow, India (2014) and later on pursued Masters in Urban Design from Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL, London, U.K. He is known and felicitated for his research that was up for an exhibition at the Pompidou Centre, Paris in 2020. He was invited to speak on Big data and AI in Architecture at an international conference, Build IT, and won a Computational Medal and distinction for his Design Project at UCL in 2014. His Conservation Project also received recognition from the President of India in 2015.  Conferred with  Best Architectural Thesis by the Council of Architecture in 2014, he has found recognition in the Middle East, MEA, and Museum of Architecture, Slovenia. 

Why Computational Design and Artificial Intelligence in Architecture?


These advanced tools make it easier to simulate building performance through the design process. Want to know how much daylight you can expect on a partially cloudy day in March? Create a tool through this course that helps you measure this.

Our intent is to make sure you understand computational logic and are confident in its application.


  • Who all can take this course?

    The demand for computational design and Artificial Intelligence is expanding beyond the confines of only architecture. Be it automobile, interior design or other creative professions, anyone interested in learning computational design, Rhino or Grasshopper, Galapagos can enrol themselves for the course.

  • I am in my first year of graduation. Can I take this course?

    Absolutely. It is suitable for first year students as well.

  • Is any prior knowledge required?

    The course is structured and tailored as per the needs of the students, graduate architects and design students. No prior knowledge of grasshopper3D or Rhino is required.

  • If I miss a session, will I get to see the recorded lecture?

    We understand that a visual repository is needed to learn software, so we will support learners with recordings.

  • How do I get my query resolved?

    Our team is here to help you. You will be assigned a coordinator who you can contact for any query between and after the sessions!

  • I don't have the software. Can I attend the course?

    Absolutely! Some of you might be new to the software, and we understand that. Before the batch starts, our team will make sure you are well prepared and ready.

  • Will I get a certificate?

    Yes. This is a certified course. You will be provided with a certificate.
