An Exploration of the Role of Computational Analytical Methods in the Urban Design Process

This thesis explores the use of computational analytical methods on the urban design process, incorporating emerging real-time digital urban data (Geographic Information Science) to provide an empirical framework to inform reasoned decision-making in the urban design process. It argues that the advancement in technology has opened up new ways to conduct empirical investigations within the rational design process and enables stakeholder participation at the core of the design process.
