This course is not offered every semester. The next class will be offered during the Fall 2015 semester.
The Architectural Studies 1 (MSc1) course introduces students to a computational approach of architectural design. A series of workshops prompts students towards an understanding of computational design strategies, methodologies and tools. These workshops bring student up to speed in terms of modeling, programming and fabrication skills, which are needed to successfully complete the Design Studio. Workshops consist of architectural design exercises that can be completed within 2,5 days. This hands-on, intensive approach allows students to build skill and confidence in short periods of time. Specific design problems that have filtered through from the Design Studio Projects are zoomed in upon; a way of inserting domain expertise of the workshop tutors into the studio projects.
