|Class Title||Advanced Digital Fabrication|
Arch 571 is a hands on research based course that will result in 1:1 fabricated prototypical projects. The emphasis will be on the production of architecture as a technological and cultural artifact, with specific interest in leveraging the power of computationally based design and numerically controlled machines towards new methodologies, materials, and systems of production. The course serves as a platform to advance knowledge in the fields through an environment dedicated to  advanced material research,  iterative empirical experimentation,  and complex geometric manipulation.
Student must be proficient and confident with 3D modeling in Rhino and highly self-motivated. Previous experience with parametric modeling and/or coding in encouraged, though not required. Fine attention to craft and an appreciation for a 'hands-on' approach are a must. Class enrollment limited to 15 students.
