ARCH 473/3522 - Digital Design Studio and Workshop (3 cr.)
Studio on smart buildings and high-tech architecture. Expanding on the 1970’s theme of High-Tech architecture, this studio aims at redefining the role of cutting edge technology in design- both process and product. Digital technology has revolutionized the way we conceptualized, visualize, present and are eventually able to construct our buildings, making impossible designs of the past a reality. Rapid developments in materials, building systems and construction methods have broadened our design horizons. Issues such as virtual architecture and smart buildings will be explored with regards to their viability and role in the future of architecture.
Six-hour studio period.
Offered in fall and spring.
