Introduction to Computation and Fabrication

Introduction to Computation and Fabrication

This course is an introduction to digital fabrication. It will explore the qualities of materials such as wood, concrete, and plastics in the context of computational design and digital fabrication thinking and techniques. Projects will provide students with experience in the use of a variety of tools, equipment, concepts, and emerging digitally-driven technologies, including parametric rule-based design, subtractive fabrication, assembly techniques, and iterative design processes

ARCH4710UrbanDesign, SPRING 2014

ARCH4710UrbanDesign, SPRING 2014

This design course will cover a range of urban and architectural design issues. Students will explore both the theoretical and pragmatic aspects of design applied in an urban environment. As an advanced design class, this course will incorporate previous studio and lecture coursework to tie together topics of urban planning, architectural design, environmental sustainability and historic preservation.

Intermediate Computation and Fabrication, Spring 2014

Intermediate Computation and Fabrication, Spring 2014

This course, the second in the digital fabrication certificate sequence (following ARCH3590), focuses on the development of parametric tools and digital prototyping techniques. Beginning from the study of precedents of modern architectural fabrication—both digital and non-digital– the course will develop a comprehensive understanding of exemplary construction and tectonic systems, as well as allowing students to develop a proficiency in applying this knowledge in constructing associative/parametric digital models that utilize tools to generate alternative variations of these systems. An integral part of the course involves the study of parametric modeling in Rhino 3D, Grasshopper, and SolidWorks, with dedicated workshops on geometry and linear algebra for 3D modeling. The output of the course will be a digitally modeled and fabricated paneling systems. Students will come away from the course with digital and material models, and documentation of the structural characteristics of the materials and fabrication techniques used.

ARCH 3510

ARCH 3510

This studio focuses on the design development and detailing of both a commercial and a residential project. This studio addresses the next level of design after schematic design: design development. This includes the integration of structure, mechanical, lighting, plumbing fixture selection, interior materials, finishes, space programming and furniture layout. Students will be required to meet current design and functional needs of the design problem’s program as well as code requirements.
