ARCH.3691.AdvancedDesignandBIM

ARCH.3691.AdvancedDesignandBIM

In recent years BIM (Building Information Modeling) has been heralded as the wave of the future but it has not been fully integrated into the practice of Architecture. New and complex ways of doing things are often better tested with a tight knit team working on a small scale project before the methods can be scaled up to large projects They key to BIM is not just the integration of the project in a smart model but the integration of the team. This semester you will have the opportunity to test and hone both your computer skills and your team building skills. You will be required to work as a group of competing team to think out how best to progress through the design and development and construction of a project.

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.
