Geometric Disciplines and Architecture Skills II

This course was conceived as an extension of 4.105, in which the pace of exercises has been slowed to allow a deeper investigation into tools and themes introduced during the fall term. As the tools used for generating architectural form advance, the set of possible outcomes multiplies. The exercises presented in this course are to be understood within the context of this change, and the effort to maintain a disciplined approach to architecture in the face of eroding constraints. Weekly workshops and bi-weekly pin-ups will adopt contemporary digital tools, including Grasshopper, Python Scripting, Processing and rendering.

Restricted to first year MArch students.
