This course explores contemporary thinking and making within architecture and its impact on public life. Students will develop skills in hand drawing, digital modeling, as well as physical modeling in 3D. Through collaborative work and one-on-one mentorship, students learn how architects develop design ideas, do research and represent proposals. Conceptual thinking is emphasized as students work to envision new approaches to the built environment through multiple design approaches. An active studio practice will feature drawing and hand-built models of proposed spaces, buildings, sculptures and/or future environments. In addition, students examine the works of artists, architects and writers for inspiration. Students can expect to gain knowledge of the contemporary architectural landscape and the appreciation of the impact other disciplines have on architecture and design. Students will be able to create a portfolio-quality collection of sketches, technical drawings, physical models and design presentation boards.
