ARCH3590 | 24SP : parametric computation, materials and fabrication

ARCH3590 | 24SP : parametric computation, materials and fabrication

This course is an introduction to parametric computational design and digital fabrication. Grasshopper, a Rhino plug-in, will be used as a primary digital modeling tool. Students will learn how to use the tool, how to work with algorithms, and how to utilize them for architectural design projects. The course will also explore qualities of basic materials such as paper, wood, concrete, and plastics in the context of computational design and digital fabrication thinking and techniques. Students will be challenged to design and fabricate three small projects: a paper lamp, a CNC milling, a pavilion/furniture project. Students will create their own geometry creation algorithms in Grasshopper and prepare 3D models for the fabrication of physical models of each project. The projects will provide students with opportunities to explore and learn the concept and techniques of parametric rule-based design, digital fabrication tools, assembly of fabricated parts.

ARCH2310 Design III, Fall 2017

ARCH2310 Design III, Fall 2017

This course is an exploration of abstract architectural design theory as an expression of three-dimensional space. The creation of comprehensive architectural design projects are developed following a building program and incorporating elements of site, enclosure, structure, material and technology. Design concepts and vocabulary are introduced and strengthened through design projects.
