Introduction to Design Computing
MetadataShow full item record
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 of computer rendering and design construction and fabrication. Students design a small building using computer models leading to a full package of physical and virtual materials, from computer generated drawings to rapid, prototyped models.
