Architectural Assemblies

Required of: 
MArch students

Architectural Assemblies, is a framework geared towards the development of innovative architectural systems, with a specific focus on the building envelope. 

An overview of materials, processing methods, and their formation into building systems across cultures will be provided through in-depth lectures of notable built works. Normative and advanced design-delivery techniques will be examined through projects utilizing conventional documentation, Building Information Modelling (BIM) and Building Information Generation (BIG), coupled with automation pipelines and file-to-factory processes. A holistic understanding of the architectural-building cycle enables participants to build upon the recent history of design and construction to make informed decisions towards developing innovative building systems.
