The course tackles issues related to architectural design software and in particular software as a design tool rather than plain modeling. Representational techniques are explored and an introduction to programming is attempted.
Students work on four interlinked projects:
- 3d modeling of a small project using NURBS geometry, renders
- 3d modeling of a small project using mesh geometry, walkthrough animation, renders
- interactive exploration of the project in real-time
- design of a poster integrating plans, sections, renders from the project in scale, with text
