Schematic Design

Schematic design begins in rough form as sketches, floor plan studies, and 3d or physical models. Several owner/designer meetings are typical during this phase to make decisions and determine a direction for the design to evolve.


Setting up goals early and keeping to them can keep a project on track even when the going gets rough.

It's easy to get lost in the weeds when trying to find useful computational design tools and scripts, we've curated the best tools into tutorials for solving design problems.


These are the building blocks of computational design that you can plug into your tool, analysis, or design process already made.


Pylos also has a variety of presentations and resources from past lunch and learns, meetings, workshops, and other events helping the firm share knowledge for high performance and computational design.
