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

Intermediate Computation and Fabrication

Intermediate Computation and Fabrication

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.

ARCH3522 NYC Arch, SP2014

ARCH3522 NYC Arch, SP2014

A historical analysis of the city’s infrastructure, real estate development, municipal planning and ordinances and key building using the comparative method. The development of a megalopolis. (more to come…)

Introduction to Industrial Robotic Automation for Architectural Manufacturing

Introduction to Industrial Robotic Automation for Architectural Manufacturing

This Perkins-funded, non-credit bearing pilot course will give students a basic introduction to the world of industrial robotic arms and automated manufacturing. An architectural assembly will be proposed, simulated, and prototyped using graphical programming in Robot Studio, the ABB RAPID code language, and the ABB IRB 140 industrial robotic arm.
