ARCH 709 – Advanced Prototyping


This course implements advanced material, fabrication, and computation skills in the production of façade system prototypes that center on cultural and site inputs, construction system realities, and client concerns. 
Partnering with renowned practioners, the Advanced Prototyping course will lend its energy and expertise to a collaboration with an honored guest critic who will have a major role in selecting the material, machine, and/or method of fabrication they wish to explore for a real or hypothetical project of their choosing. This year’s honored guest is Sir David Adjaye.
The course will center on material investigations, methods of construction, and design exploration. Students in the course will produce scaled prototypes and full-scale mock-ups launched from specific design constraints and prompts.
