Using technology for graphical representation has become a standard in Design practices. Understanding how technology can aid in the design, rather than inhibit creativity, has been a struggle in the emerging world of Architecture. Each professional needs to be able to leverage technology throughout the design and construction process to aid in such tasks as site planning, schematics, design development, analysis, construction documents and project management. In this course students will learn Autodesk Revit to aid in the design process and analysis, create construction documents, and render graphics for each stage of design.
