Mediums 3: Architectural Fabrication ARCH-713A
Architectural Fabrication will focus on the computational processes, methods of making and production that informs an architectural project. Using an architectural precedent study based on an existing facade, interior or structural elements, students will seek to design and fabricate an architectural assembly detail that incorporates new relationships between computational methods, such as parametric modeling and scripting, and fabrication outputs, such as laser cutting, casting, vacuum forming, rapid prototyping. To propose a refabricated assembly that embeds and communicates new mediums. This final course will continue to introduce students to contemporary mediums, methods and theories of how digital tools impact basic concepts of architectural representation with an emphasis on experience.
