Course Description

This course introduces three-dimensional composition of modules, basic form and volume principles, and form-based (three-dimensional) operational and ordering strategies. We will focus on the relationships between form and space with basic ingredients such as planes, surfaces, masses, and volumes. Students will produce physical and digital working models of their module studies as well as generating plan and section drawing types.

Session 1: Ordering 3D Modules (October 23, 2018)
This session reinforces an understanding of ordering systems using three-dimensional modules. The focus is primarily on physical and digital modeling.
4 lessons
1. Introduction
2. Modeling Modules + Creating Larger Assemblies
3. Elevation Drawing
4. Isometric Drawing + Conclusion
Session 2: Aggregating Modules (October 30, 2018)
This session reinforces an understanding of geometric operations. We will aggregate our three-dimensional modules into a larger form via digital modeling.
4 lessons
1. Populating the Site
2. Ordering Systems
3. Vivisection Study
4. Developing a Prototypical Section
Session 3: Breaking the Cube (November 6, 2018)
In this session we will work in reverse, starting with a cube, and breaking, sliding, and folding its planes to create a spatial construct. Digital and physical models will be necessary to complete this investigation.
4 lessons
1. Modeling Solids
2. Surface Manipulation
3. Clipping Planes
4. Modeling + Populating the Site
Session 4: Interlocking Spatial Systems (November 13, 2018)
This session introduces plan and section drawing types and conventions. The model from the previous session will be sliced and drawn to reveal unique spatial opportunities and sequences through drawing development.
7 lessons
1. Section Drawings
2. Plan Drawings
3. Perspective Drawings
4. Drawing Extraction Demo 1
5. Drawing Extraction Demo 2
6. Drawing Extraction Demo 3
7. Conclusion
