ARCH2431 Building Tech III, SP2019

Course focus is on steel construction. This course studies the development of building systems as they occur during the design development phase of architecture. The focus will be on steel construction. Using case study research methods, students analyze factors, such as building assemblies and systems, codes and government regulations, human ergonomics, and sustainability, which affect building construction and use. Their solutions to these issues are integrated into their final building design solutions. Students create a series of reports and a set of construction drawings using both analog methods (hand sketching and drawing) and digital tools including traditional CAD software and Building Information Modeling techniques.

Through an exploration of various genres of literature, this course aims to strengthen and sharpen students’ critical reading and writing skills beyond the level achieved in English 1101.

ARCH1101.470: Introduction to Architecture

ARCH1101.470: Introduction to Architecture

The study of architecture begins by developing a visual literacy of the built environment. Using New York City as a living laboratory, students explore concepts of design, composition, and construction in the context of the city by sketching and writing about their direct experience of buildings. Accompanying lectures focus on freehand drawing techniques, concepts of composition, writing about buildings and their construction, and reading architectural drawings. As a co-requisite of Design Foundations and a pre-requisite of Building Technology and architecture history, students are exposed to various styles of architecture and methods of construction found in the city. Along with developing graphic skills, students will build the basic foundation to talk, write, and graphically express architecture and its construction.
