Lecture by Jeroen van Ameijde
The notion of “deep planning” was first introduced in 1999 within a small avant-garde of architects exploring the implications of information-based design methodologies. It describes an “integral, time- and user-based approach” to architecture and urbanism, aiming to explore the complex functioning of buildings and urban areas in relation to their physical and cultural contexts. In this lecture, Jeroen van Ameijde discusses a range of his academic and professional projects developed through computational generative design processes, using “deep planning” as a methodology and ethos to address emergent urban conditions in fast-growing cities around the world.
Jeroen van Ameijde is a Unit Master at the Architectural Association and the Bartlett School of Architecture, University College London, as well as a founding partner of Urban Systems Office, a London-based practice specialising in generative design methodologies. After graduating from TU Delft, van Ameijde has worked in London, New York and Hong Kong, and taught at the University of Pennsylvania. Over the years, he has also conducted workshops, lectured and published internationally, investigating the critical application of digital design and construction processes in dense urban contexts.
