The average academic programs appear not to contain sufficient elements in favor of computational methods, which remain strongly ghettoized in important modules like design studios in Architecture and structures modules in Engineering. Undergraduate programs are extremely hard to change due to the educational frameworks. Several authors have discussed the difficulties of embedding digital strategies and techniques within the academic realm, even with a specific focus to Architecture. Extra-curricular activities ranging from Parametric Design to BIM, to more appealing technologies such as AI and Robotic Fabrication, have been organized in response to the need for innovation. The paper illustrates the outcomes of a series of teaching activities carried out to frame needs and solutions in Architecture pedagogy. The paper discusses new educational trends which will foster enhanced and sustainable design processes and built environment.
