ARCH 2468 - Digital Constructs for Building Sciences
This course will examine and teach methods for the representation and visual communication of measured data within the built environment with a strong focus on environmental datasets. Students will be introduced to digital modeling, environmental plug-ins and graphic design softwares that effectively translate and visualize information from building environmental surroundings, site, and building performance. Students will demonstrate the capacity to employ methods for data visualization as they pertain to a range of highly contextual case studies and spaces mapping daylight, temperature, humidity, air quality and other sensory information. Skills taught will enable students to produce two-dimensional and three-dimensional synthetic data visualizations in digital modeling environments.
This course is offered in the fall semester and is required of all first-year undergraduates in the Building Sciences program.
B.Arch and M.Arch students can register for this course. Students from other majors will need permission of the instructor.
This is a data-intensive course.
