This intensive seminar will contribute directly to a wider exhibition project titled Reyner Banham: A Set of Actual Tracks. The concept that lies at the core at the exhibition project is to investigate and question through fresh critical lenses the attitude and research method of one of the most relevant architectural and design critics of the 20th century, Reyner Banham.

This course will investigate the theoretical frameworks of architectural materiality as they emerged during the era known as the “Enlightenment” (modernity, in other words), leading to the suspicion towards that commitment that emerged in the post-WWII period.

This course focuses on construction materials, systems and integrated design.  Through the careful study of buildings that relate concept to construction systems and tectonics, students develop an appreciation for the value of fully resolved execution.  This study locates architecture at the juncture of design intention and technical means.

This course provides an introduction to the environmental and the design aspects of architectural lighting and acoustics. The series presents both qualitative criteria relating to architectural concepts and computational analysis to assist design. Students will develop an understanding of interior lighting, daylighting, room acoustics and noise control as components of architectural design through a structured program of lectures, readings, exams and projects.

The focus of this studio is integrated architectural design - a synthesis of concept and construct addressing design strategy, program, site, construction, and technology.   Students’ work will be informed by exploration of urban issues, history and culture as well as materiality and craft. Design proposals will be expected to address structure and environmental systems, life safety, accessibility, and material assemblies.

This course will explore and support and development and use of student’s skills in Rhino 3d. Students will explore new modeling techniques in digital interface and methods of physical output. There will be an emphasis on design for digitally fabricated models based on the techniques in the digital models. 
6/26/18
In this class we will develop an appreciation for the interdependence of planning, architecture, landscape and design and the roles they play in successful site analysis and subsequent construction.

The preservation/conservation of historically significant American sites, buildings, and neighborhoods is complex. Preservation in America has evolved from the “private sector’s concern for saving patriotic sites” to a movement that is Federally mandated.
