Covers fundamental digital techniques for visualization in design, focusing on the use of computers in architectural design, production, fabrication, presentation, and communication. This class is intended to develop visual literacy in computer applications used in design. In addition, this course examines the use of digital media through exercising its potential as a generative tool and as a form of design thinking. Emphasis is on the visual communication of an idea through the use of integrated media. The course also discusses technology’s use in and impact on the architectural process, as well as the effect of digital media on design and on education. The study of contemporary architects and short class lectures begin to explore the applicability, value, and potentiality of technology in defining or redefining architectural design and practice.
