ARC 4342 Architectural Design 7 (4 credits)
A flexible framework for appropriate investigations of complex spatial, programmatic, contextual, constructional and ethical issues involved in design projects. Course content varies with instructor.
Prerequisite: ARC 4335. (F)
The criteria for evaluation in design 7 are based on the ability of the student to produce their own design process. In this particular studio we look at ways the student can experiment with multimedia and communication technology and how the use of this medium can alter an influence a more mature design process in the student. By midterm the student should have a good understanding of their design project and be able to express accordingly with the medium promoted in the studio.
You will be evaluated for:
The student work and presentation should have “mini-thesis” of their project with regards to the following:
Architectural Thinking is not only oral or written but also (and essentially) visual. Students projects by midterm should offer the level of an intense visual investigation of which is what they are pursuing and proposing.
Students are required by midterm to have the following:
1. Scale Drawings: Plans, Sections and Elevations (at the schematic design level) and 3D Rendering printed in one or two boards of 30” x 20” (min).
2. A jpg presentation of (at least) 30 images of the design process, scale drawings. And midterm computer models of the proyect. We will use Compupic or ACDC software for presentation. Please let me know if you have not used before.
PLEASE NOTE: It is very important that you present the site in your project, with the best level of detail as possible…flying trough images are important to give a sense of location of the building but beyond that eye level images with people and site conditions are very important to understand you project.
3. A completed web site for digital review (20 % of the grade will be given by reviewers online).
4. Animations, scketches, and other multimedia presentations.
10 minute multimedia presentation. Live your oral comments to a minimum and make sure they are well prepared. Remember in design 7 you should demonstrate you have clear and independent design reasoning in this experimental studio
5 minute presentation online to the online jury. Please streamline your web site so the jurors can see it.
