About

The Fundamentals of Digital Design for Architecture program offered on the Kadenze platform is a new spin on beginning architectural design, introducing digital skill sets and parametric thinking through drawing, modeling, and prototyping.

Overview

The exercises progress from two-dimensional drawings and graphic compositions, to three-dimensional spatial studies, to physical and material investigations. At each step, computational design tools and digital information are used to generate, analyze, prototype architectural design propositions. The exercises can be performed with an array of software, however the course demonstrations make use of Rhino3D and Adobe Illustrator (no prior experience with Rhino and Illustrator is required, in fact, the exercises are structured for students to learn how to deploy these tools from scratch). Regardless of specific software tools, the principles that are introduced and applied in the Fundamentals of Digital Design for Architecture program offered on the Kadenze platform make it suitable for a range of audiences—beginners, as well as professionals who wish to retool their skills in digital design.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understanding of different drawing types and produce these drawing types with software.
  • Ability to model surface and volume studies digitally as well as physically.
  • Understanding of basic computational design concepts, terms, and techniques.
