Media + Modelling provides foundational instruction in the theory and practice of architectural computation and geometric description. The goals of the course are to provide students with core technical skills necessary to design and document architectural designs, while in parallel establishing a foundation of inquiry into the geometric and mathematical foundations of architectural geometry, form and space. Curriculum focuses on learning basic operations of basic programs, applying this knowledge to the students’ own designs, and exploration of new possibilities in architectural representation, especially through communication of design intent, concepts, and processes. Assignments are organized around selected precedent buildings chosen from a range of epochs in architectural history in order to develop rich and articulate drawings and models that are full of detail and aesthetic features.

The intermediate section of the course progresses from 2Ddrafting, diagramming, and composition, to3D modeling, rendering and introduction to rapid prototyping. The advanced section works to describe building systems through visual programming, parametric variations, analysis, and optimization.
