Architectural 3D Modelling using Autodesk Maya


The main objective of this course is to introduce various techniques of polygon mesh modelling utilizing Autodesk Maya for designing complex geometries and architectural forms. The processes covered in these classes will explore various mesh modelling operations that can be applied to a polygon primitive to achieve high-end results in architectural 3d modelling. This course will cover basic approaches of polygon modelling for beginners as well as intermediate levels of modeling to achieve a complex geometry.



Class 1 (4 hours)
Beginner-level modelling of simple architectural
– Understanding of the basic Maya software user interface.
– Introduction to procedural polygon modelling in Maya.
– Design of simple geometries using basic commands and simple techniques of mesh modelling –Canopy design/Tower typology (to be decided)

Class 2 (4 hours)
Intermediate-level modelling of architectural geometry with interior
– Implementation of Maya polygon modelling techniques to develop a complex architectural geometry.
– Achieving parametric patterning on façade and landscape using Maya as well as building form detailing and materiality.
– Modelling simple interior details within the conceptual geometry.



This course is for anyone interested in learning Autodesk MAYA.
It is designed for beginner level participants, suitable for those design students and professionals.
*No previous knowledge required.

Level: Beginners & Intermediate

Participants will learn:
– What is Maya 3D polygon modelling
