Models have always been an integral part of the architectural design process. Todays performative-design-models are more than simply representations of a project, they are advanced systems. Such a system captures design dependencies and allows to evaluate performance before realisation.
The presentation will highlight how such performative-models are used exploratively in design research at the Städelschule Architecture Class (SAC) as well as in practice on large scale projects and product development. The very essence of these models is to capture design knowledge on project requirements, building performance, and fabrication logic. The challenge of such models is to balance the richness of content with the agility for design exploration. In that sense the performative-model is an extension of the Building Information Model (BIM) paradigm; design is paramount.
