ARCH 4430 - Electronic Media: Physical Design Processes


This course will examine processes of design prototyping and fabrication via 3-D scanning, CNC milling, and other techniques in a critical design context. Two particular foci will be established: the application of these tools as means for physical design visualization of computer-based design work and the exploration of the systemic biases these tools give to the design conceptualization process. In both cases, creative exploration of design opportunity will be encouraged. Students will be expected to create multiple material experiments during the term and will be responsible for purchasing their own materials.

Credit Hours: 4
