Arch534: Advanced Computer-aided Architectural Design
General description:

The purposes of this class are to explore the "common denominators" of design across all design fields. Areas of studies include:

  1. Exploration of design methodologies of analogy, parti, metaphor, and deformation.
  2. Exploration of organic form creation to understand motion in design products,
  3. Exploration of GrassHopper application for developing design strategies.
  4. Exploration of parametric modeling to capture the motion in design.
Any major is welcome.
This course fulfills the Digital Media Minor Degree.

Course concentrations in Spring, 2017 ---

  1. Backward thinking.
  2. Rhino modeling.
  3. GrassHopper algorithmic creation.
  4. Utilizing Python to control GrassHopper in Rhino.
