ARCH 2620 - Graduate Architecture Design 2

A continuation of the pursuit of architecture as critical inquiry within a broad societal context. Instruction integrates considerations of drawing, computers, and construction with design projects. Technology: The technology aspects focus on the microclimate and environment context, including shade and shadow analysis, developing skyline plots, and sharing system design and analysis, as well as outdoor environments with emphasis on structure, material, and passive solar systems. Computing: explorations with the computer continue to focus on developing knowledge of 3-D modeling and 2-D image manipulation software and its application to design representations. Computer media are integrated with studio design projects. Drawing: freehand drawing exercises related to studio projects further develop basic drawing skills and familiarly with 2-D design concepts.
