Digital Spring 2020

instructor: Soomeen Hahm
TA: Xin Liu

The contemporary architect is presented with ever changing methods of production and representation. Gaining higher control in digital tools through using scripting skills nowadays allows designers to be able to hack into a conventional software platform and customize their own design tools for their specific design tasks. This seminar will explore this idea through designing digital models with code generated geometries. Further to that, this seminar will also push students to think further for the execution of those digitally generated geometries into physical reality by proposing relevant material and construction processes as well as by thinking about the production process of a 1:20 physical models by designing the interfaces between builder and digital models through various Augmented Reality techniques. The proposals generated by the students will explore the consequences of novel forms digital production for the contemporary architect.
