3D Model-Making Studio (ARCH206)

Offered By:  Engineering and Materials Science Faculty

Course Prerequisites

Description

 

This course aims to develop individual abilities in material examination and architectural model-making and to develop an understanding of the importance of 3D manual processes within a design context.
Model-making will be approached as an experimental practice in which models act as tools for exploring spatial ideas.
This practical course will focus on a series of material and process exercises, in which a range of alternative model-making materials will be used. Students will consider an extended range of material possibilities; they will draw relationships between spatial qualities and the symbolic properties of materials during the thinking-making process, considering aspects of tectonic assembly, abstraction, representation and scale.
