ARH 620 Digitally Generated Morphology

Faculty: Peter Suen / David Campbell / Benjamin Rice

Course Description

In this class, students will learn the essential skills and software necessary to visualize, generate, and design an architectural proposal using 3D modeling software. Through in-class tutorials, group/ individual critiques, and selected readings, students will learn how to use the computer as a generative design tool and not purely for representation.

Course Learning Outcome

As a result of successfully completing this course, students…

  • Will be able to:

    • Incorporate advanced 3D modeling techniques as tools for design and representation.
    • Perform a range of 3D modeling operations utilizing splines, primitives, polygons, modifiers, lofts, meshes and nurbs.
    • Competently animate and render in 3D modeling software.
    • Undertake basic scripting in 3D modeling software.
