  • Zane, Joe (2006-12)
    Introduction to artistic practice and aesthetic analysis through studio work and lectures. Students communicate ideas and experiences through various media such as sculpture, installation, performance, and video. Projects ...
  • Glicksman, Leon (2003-12)
    4.42J (or 2.66J or 1.044J), Fundamentals of Energy in Buildings, is an undergraduate class offered in the Department of Architecture, and jointly in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering and the Department ...
  • Glicksman, Leon (2008-12)
    This subject provides a first course in thermo-sciences for students primarily interested in architecture and building technology. It introduces the fundamentals important to energy, ventilation, air conditioning and comfort ...
  • Andersen, Marilyne (2006-12)
    This class provides the tools necessary for an efficient integration of daylighting issues in the overall design of a building. The fundamentals of daylighting and electric lighting are introduced and their relevance to ...
  • Ochsendorf, John Allen (2003-06)
    This course introduces the static behavior of structures and strength of materials. Topics covered include: reactions, truss analysis, stability of structures, stress and strain at a point, shear and bending moment diagrams, ...
  • Ochsendorf, John Allen (2003-06)
    This course serves as an introduction to the history, theory, and construction of basic structural systems with an introduction to energy issues in buildings. Emphasis is placed on developing an understanding of basic ...
  • Andersen, Marilyne (2004-12)
    The course focuses on the use and optimization of daylight in buildings and on its complementarity to artificial (electric) lighting, to aim at reducing the building's environmental impact while improving the visual comfort ...
  • Andersen, Marilyne; Reinhart, Christoph (2005-01)
    Today, computer-based simulations are becoming increasingly popular, especially when daylighting and energy conservation are amongst the key goals for a project. This two-week workshop will expose participants to the current ...
  • Sass, Lawrence (2006-06)
    This course introduces students to architectural design and computation through the use of computer modeling, rendering, and digital fabrication. The focus is on the exploration of space and place-making through the use ...
  • Sass, Lawrence (2005-12)
    This class serves as an introductory subject in advanced computing, rapid prototyping, and CAD/CAM fabrication for architects. It focuses on the relationship between design and various forms of computer modeling as input, ...
  • Jones, Caroline (2004-06)
    This class provides an introduction to modern art and theories of modernism and postmodernism. It focuses on the way artists use the tension between fine art and mass culture to mobilize a critique of both. We will examine ...
  • Jarzombek, Mark (2002-12)
    This course studies the interrelationship of theory, history, and practice as it relates to architecture and the architect. It looks at theory not as a specialized discourse relating only to architecture, but as touching ...
  • Jones, Caroline (2002-12)
    Critical examination of major developments in European and American art during the past century. Surveys art's engagements with modernization, radical politics, utopianism, mass culture, changing conceptions of mind and ...
  • Jones, Caroline (2002-12)
    This seminar is open to graduate students, and is intended to offer a synoptic view of selected methodologies and thinkers in art history (with some implications for architecture). It is a writing-intensive class based on ...
  • McCluskey, Keith (2005-12)
    The transition from high school and home to college and a new living environment can be a fascinating and interesting time, made all the more challenging and interesting by being at MIT. More than recording the first ...
  • Nocera, Daniel G., 1957- (2004-12)
    Systematic presentation of the chemical applications of group theory. Emphasis on the formal development of the subject and its applications to the physical methods of inorganic chemical compounds. Against the backdrop of ...
  • Mueller, Peter (2007-12)
    This course in crystal structure refinement examines the practical aspects of crystal structure determination from data collection strategies to data reduction and basic and advanced refinement problems of organic and ...
  • Mueller, Peter (2005-06)
    Introduction to the study of physical methods to probe the electronic and geometric structure of inorganic compounds. Included are electronic photoelectron spectroscopy; vibrational and rotational spectroscopy; magnetic ...
  • Mueller, Peter (2008-06)
    This course covers the following topics: X-ray diffraction: symmetry, space groups, geometry of diffraction, structure factors, phase problem, direct methods, Patterson methods, electron density maps, structure refinement, ...
  • Ceyer, Sylvia Teresse; Drennan, Catherine L. (2005-12)
    Introduction to chemistry, with emphasis on basic principles of atomic and molecular electronic structure, thermodynamics, acid-base and redox equilibria, chemical kinetics, and catalysis. Introduction to the chemistry of ...
