Semester: 2014 Spring
Location: Crosby – 301
Meeting Day(s): Monday & Wednesday
Meeting Time: 11:00AM - 12:50PM
This course focuses on construction materials, systems and
integrated design. Through the careful study of buildings that
relate design concept to construction systems and tectonics,
students develop an appreciation for the value of fully resolved
execution. This study seeks to locate architecture at the
juncture of design intention and technical means.
Information: to introduce construction materials, systems and
the concept of integrated design for small and large scale
Intention: to demonstrate how architects select and
manipulate standard materials and systems to support
particular conceptual strategies.
Application: to use the material presented in lectures as the
basis for understanding construction documents and
developing three-dimensional technical drawings.
