Geometric Disciplines and Architecture Skills

Open only to: 
1st-year MArch
Required of: 
MArch

The first semester of the MArch program follows a project-based learning approach. A central project is addressed by each student, guided by a range of disciplinary approaches. This CoLab (Collaborative Laboratory) will bring together the disciplines of Htc, BT, Design, and Computation to provide circuits for exercising and exploring the central project.

Intensive introduction to architectural design tools and process, taught through a series of short exercises. Covers a broad range of topics relating to the discourse of geometry as the basis of architectural design process. Focuses on projective drawings, explicit 3D modeling, and the reciprocity between representation and materialization. Lectures, workshops, and pin-ups address the architectural arguments intrinsic to geometry and its representation.
