ARCH-901 Design 1: Introduction to Media & Methods
9:00 am – 12:20 pm
Higgins Hall Center, 320
This is the first of three sequential studios. The course introduces incoming post-professional students to a selective yet vital range of digital, physical and graphic media through a series of architectural design exercises and speculations. A series of sequential, short projects allow students to become familiar with different media-driven design approaches ranging from a focus on architectural fabrication to architectural visualization. The course intends to expose students to the design methods and discourse surrounding architectural mediums as well as introduce them to the representational logics of innovation in contemporary architecture.
