Simulation and Prototyping

College of Architecture
ARCH
Introduction to the theory and practice of information modeling, simulation, prototyping and fabrication within an architectural context. This course will introduce how information is structured and used in multiple levels of design development and implementation and the application of that information in formal and fabrication processes through generative and performative modeling. Students will be introduced to building information modeling and manipulation, parametric modeling, scripting, simulation, and analysis methods, as well as current standards in fabrication workflows.
