ARCH 3212: BDA: Analytical Modeling of Contemporary Architecture

3 Credits

Insight into analytical modeling as one of the most important tools for a designer. Exercises, activities and iterative making of analytical models will help students to gain insight into works of contemporary architecture; analyze constituent elements and systems of form, space and order; investigate and make visible the underlying conceptual notions that generated the work; explore physical modeling as modes and techniques of analysis and representation; explore the specific issue of scale in analysis, representation and design resolution; read 2-D architectural drawings and translate them into 3-D physical form; and generally improve physical modeling skills.
