ARH - 421 Advanced Computer-Aided Design

Undergraduate course that focuses on the use of computer software and fabrication machinery as tools for architectural design, prototyping and communication. Emphasis is given on the use of parametric-associative design as generative tool to investigate and optimize solutions in various architectural issues. Topics include 3d nurbs modeling, parametric-associative design, rapid prototyping and laser cutting. Software and plug-ins include: Rhino/Grasshopper.
