This paper reflects a collaborative, research led design project, aiming to explorethe potentials offered by incorporating parametric / generative tools and performative lighting simulation software in order to design and fabricate a small pavilion for the School of Architecture. The Deceptive Landscape pavilion wasdesigned in the framework of a masters level, research led, and collaborativedesign studio. During its intense 12 weeks schedule, student teams were asked toexplore and apply generative / parametric tools such as Rhino and Grasshopper,in order to design and later construct a small pavilion, with a theme of their choice. In addition, each team was asked to optimise their design proposal byembedding environmental software plug-ins (e.g. DIVA for Rhino) in their design process, thereby aiming to re-inform their parametric models and set performance targets. Finally each team was expected to propose a file to factory fabrication technique, following all constrains of a limited, predetermined budget. The most convincing and consistent proposal, was then chosen for fabrication. The finalised project serves as verification of the effectiveness of the design system and teaching methods used.
