ARCH 2003 Architectural Techniques

Architectural Techniques is about architectural representation—the exploration of drawing, modeling, and digital applications to the design process. Introducing software as a design tool, the course is designed to aid students in the development of two- and three-dimensional information necessary for the production of architectural renderings and fabrications. Focusing on the relationship between architecture and contemporary technologies of production, the course is also an opportunity to learn about the history of architectural representation and basic techniques, creating a general background from which to operate. At the conclusion of the course, students are expected to be able to engage with the required software for architectural design exploration and communication, including Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign and Autodesk AutoCAD, Rhino, 3DS Max, and Revit.
