ARCH3512 Design VI Fall 2019

Adaptive Reuse Studio

ARCH3612 Design VI, S2020

ARCH3612 Design VI, S2020

Course Description: This is an advanced design studio where the significance of public housing will be examined. The studio will research, evaluate analyze and investigate multi-family housing and urban redevelopment, and propose an exploratory approach to the planning and delivery of housing. The final project will consist of designing high density mixed –use housing and public space with community amenities.

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.

ARCH3522 NYC Arch, FA2019

ARCH3522 NYC Arch, FA2019

A historical analysis of the city’s infrastructure, real estate development, municipal planning, ordinances and key buildings using the comparative method. The class will trace the course of architectural history from the village to the present role of the city as the commercial and cultural hub of the nation. This course will stress the dynamic socio-economic determinants emerging as a result of improvements and growth in technology, transportation, infrastructure, real estate, commerce, housing and recreation.

ARCH2431 Building Tech III, SP2019

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.

My Clubs

NYCCT Architecture Club

NYCCT Architecture Club

For over 30 years the Architecture Club has been one of the most influential clubs on City Tech’s campus. Each semester students and club members’ gain valuable knowledge from speakers who are invited to come and share their architectural experiences with the club. However, class lectures are no substitute for the personal, eye opening experiences that a field trip can bring.
