Course Description:
This course will focus on the advancement of digital design as an iterative process. Various modeling types covered are: Explicit Modeling, Nurbs Surface Modeling, Parametric Modeling, Generative Modeling & Responsive Modeling. DC3 begins with a series of Parametric structural design concept case studies. Concepts explored are Folded Plate Tessellations, Shell Structure Tessellations, Grid Shells, and Tall Buildings. For the Midterm students are asked to create Parametric models of a proposed design. Students also made several renderings of their proposed designs. After Midterm students will explore Responsive Components and Generative Components. Lastly, the advanced rendering softwares VRay and Enscape are explored and applied to their final design proposals.
