Design the Future


Parametric Workshop | 5 Days | 19, 20, 26, 27 Feb & 5 Mar, 2022  




Be a part of the 4 days extensive workshop on Parametric Design and the role of AI in Architecture "AI-Urbanized".

The technique of computational thinking marks a paradigm shift where the relationship between elements is used to shape and dictate the form of the geometries. With computational thinking, the focus shifts from modeling the geometries to the process of defining geometries.

In AI-Urbanized, we share deep insights on how we can comprehend, proctor, quantify, and computationally design spaces of any scale. 



Virtual Exhibition

The Workshop will involve the Participants Collaborating with each other and Designing a Conceptual Project with the Learned Concepts.

About the Mentor

Ar. Piyush Prajapati 

Computational Urban Designer

Piyush Prajapati is an architect and a computational urban designer working majorly in Dubai and India. He graduated from GCA, Lucknow, India (2014) India and was awarded the Best Architectural Project in India by the Council of Architecture.


He, later on, went to pursue Masters in Machine Learning Urbanism from Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL, London, where he holds the Computational Award for his research (2019). He holds felicitations by the President of India and many other international podiums. He is also an Advisory Member of IJMAR.

His design research is currently running in an Exhibition at Pompidou Centre, Paris, under the theme of Simulated Intelligence: Neurons. He holds expertise in Artificial intelligence and its role in design and architecture. His main works focus on the amalgamation of computer intelligence and human intelligence to yield better design results.

"In this Pandemic, I have already done 2 workshops...but none of the faculty had this level of dedication and also this level of interactive workshop. With the amount of patience Chinmay Sir cleared our doubts and that to one to what the student's satisfaction is! Yes, having a competition after the workshop is surely the best introduction from the Equim! You've set the standard for all the workshops being conducted online! Feeling proud to become part of this Community Finally, I am PARAMETRIZED!"
