Bridging Architecture and Engineering with Mathematica
March 4, 2014 — Wolfram Blog Team, Wolfram Blog Team
As an instructor at the School of Architecture Paris-Malaquais, Maurizio Brocato chooses to use Mathematica because he finds alternative solutions “less complete.” Only Mathematica incorporates the requisite image, logic, and mathematics functionality into one platform.
Brocato teaches his doctoral students the importance of understanding formal and fundamental viewpoints, and his goal is to prepare them to collaborate across disciplines with others in the field of engineering.
Watch Brocato discuss how he and his students use Mathematica as a collaborative tool.

As Brocato points out, Mathematica isn’t just for doctoral students. In addition to bridging the communication gap between architects and engineers, it allows first- and second-year students to develop a better understanding of the foundation of architecture.
