This studio course focuses on digital imaging as the generator of architectural ideas, formal variation, and organizational logic. Students will develop principles of abstract design thinking by working between 2D raster-based software and 3D digital modeling software to develop processes through which image attributes such as resolution, tone, vibrance, saturation, and contrast can be deployed with explicit 3D design intentions. The module will culminate with a set of models that consider the design of architectural form and the production of image as a single synthetic act. Though intended primarily for students considering a design-related career, it is open to students from any discipline wishing to improve their visual literacy.
