He focused his speech on how students should take advantage of the university’s environment and how they can improve themselves. Saturo Sugihara from SCI-ARCH university was the other lecturer. He discussed his IGEO library for Processing and his computational design projects and the application of these methods in urban design and planning. The last lecturer was Professor Mahmoud Golabchi. He started his speech by describing new fields of study in Architecture and their approach toward this practice. Then he talked about students and their community and activities and the value of these efforts.
