ARCH 473/3522 - Digital Design Studio and Workshop (3 cr.)

ARCH 3554  

The course involves in-depth investigations focused on the capabilities of computation in architectural design. It provides an overview of computational tools and methodologies of design, involving topics such as parametric and generative modelling, algorithmic thinking, visualization and digital fabrication. Hands-on implementation of computational tools is exercised during lab sessions by means of parametric modelling and digital fabrication software. Students work back and forth between physical material experimentation and digital translation of parameters, rules, constraints and relationships to develop their solutions in applied design projects. In the process, students learn how to automatically extract data from parametric models for multiple purposes, including but not limited to digital fabrication, environmental analysis, and documentation and detailing.

Three-hour studio period and three-hour lab period.
When Offered
Offered in fall and spring.
