This page describes the currently appropriate hardware and software for
a "typical architecture student" who wants to use the Macintosh for design
work in our department. This standard system is available
from the Microcomputer
Purchase Plan at the University Computing Center. (Room 202, 503-346-4402.)
To effectively participate in the UO Architecture Computer-Integrated Studio program, each student needs to have a Power Macintosh computer in the design studio from the beginning of the studio term. More specifically, incoming architecture students are required (by a unanimous vote of the architecture faculty taken Spring 1994) to have access to computer tools in their studio work space, and assignments across the curriculum will assume this capability. The Department recommends that each student purchase his or her own Power Macintosh and specified software to meet this requirement.
The best way to contact us with computer purchase questions is by e-mail to Architecture Instructional Support. Please explain your questions in detail, and allow a couple of days for a response.
The Microcomputer Support Center and the Department of Architecture have arranged special pricing from Apple Computer on a customized hardware and sofware package. This is the recommended system and software for all incoming Architecture students.
*** Orders for this package must be placed by October 15, 1996. ***
