Elective intermediate level course in digital media and design process for continuing undergraduate and graduate architecture students. Most appropriate after at least one year of design studio. Prerequisite: Architecture 222 or permission of instructor.
Meets 12:30 to 1:50pm, Tuesday and Thursday, at Room 278 Lawrence Hall
This course will build on existing skills and knowledge toward proficiency and sophistication in the use of digital media tools for architectural illustration, drafting, and design. It is intended primarily for students who have already completed one or more computer-integrated design studios.
The course will address design process issues, project organization, document interchange, integration of traditional and modern media, and it will introduce advanced architectural rendering techniques. For example, generative and developmental design work using drawings and images extracted from three-dimensional models will be explored in detail.
Software used will include ClarisWorks, for page layout capabilities, Adobe Photoshop, for image manipulation, PowerCADD, for drawing and drafting, DesignWorkshop, for design-oriented three-dimensional modeling, and Radiance, for both accurate lighting simulation and architectural rendering.
