The final component in the undergraduate media course sequence, Media 6 will introduce the various ways that parametric models are used in practice and assist at multiple phases of a design project. The course also intends move beyond the screen by focusing more heavily on types of outputs from parametric models, from digitally fabricated physical models to new drawing types. Special topics such as physics based form finding and environmental analysis will be introduced and time permitting, incorporated into the course work.

The course is structured into a series of short exercises that will provide students with a foundation upon which to build further expertise in the above technical methods toward architectural design and representation. The course will provide hands-on demonstrations in Rhino 5 and Grasshopper, although other software may be suggested for the completion of exercises as necessary.
