Assembly

This studio module introduces students to techniques of design ideation, development, and representation through physical modeling and non-scalar material assemblies. The studio will produce constructs that exemplify and interrogate concepts of form, mass, and tectonics. Though intended primarily for students considering a design-related career, it is open to students from any discipline wishing to improve their design literacy.

Learning objectives:

  • Introduction to tectonics, material assemblies, material behaviors, and materiality
  • Introductory physical modeling
  • Introductory digital modeling
  • Introductory full-scale fabrication
  • Learning about material constraints

Software requirements:

  • Rhinoceros 3D
