Digital Methods for Architecture History

Lecture (052-0844-20)
Organizer: Chair of Prof. Delbeke
Lecturers: B. Seguin
Time: Mondays 15:00-19:00
Location: HIL D 60.1

Note that from now on all lecture video recordings and additional teaching material will be stored in the Moodle page of the course. We will provide the pdf presentations from the lectures on this page here as well, but cannot provide recordings here.

In recent years, we have seen an increased availability of digital resources, joined with an unprecedented improved access to computational capabilities and software tooling. This conjunction has opened new areas and methods for research at the intersection of the Humanities and Data Science. During this course, we will try to introduce the basic concepts necessary to approach Digital Methods, both from a theoretical and practical perspective. We will combine elements of Computational Thinking, Data Science, and Information Representation, and explore them by applying them to materials related to architecture history. It is important for students to be aware that, while we do NOT REQUIRE any prior knowledge, this course will involve mandatory programming work.
