All classes are suspended for the week of March 16. Starting the week of March 23, all classes will resume entirely online. Tulane School of Architecture (TuSA) remains open with most faculty and staff working remotely. Students can be granted access to work in the building only with prior approval from the school. At this time, we are not hosting admissions tours.

Please continue to check your Tulane email, Canvas, the TuSA COVID-19 FAQ, and the Tulane Emergency Management page for updates.

Tulane is working with students who have difficult personal circumstances that would make leaving campus a challenge or will face complications in online learning once they return home. In response, we have set up the Tulane Student Emergency Aid and Assistance Fund to address current student needs.

2017 APX Workshop

Alpha Rho Chi is excited to announce this year’s workshop with Ben Smith and Yasushi Ishida.  Yasushi is a professor at Woodbury University in Los Angeles where he has done extensive research on casting techniques and materials as shown here (https://vimeo.com/178518284).  During the workshop he will share his knowledge and expertise in innovative casting techniques including origami and vacuum forming.   The resultant of the event will be a panelized system that will be on display at Zeitgeist Gallery on OC Haley.  The event begins with a lecture on March 17 followed by workshops on the March 18 and 19 and costs 20 dollars.  Signups will be in the lobby from 12-1, the next two weeks on Monday, Wednesday and Friday for the next two weeks.

ARCH 4350/6350

The expression, artifacts of architectural production, refers to the objects (drawings, models, diagrams, hybrids, art works, etc) that an architect makes. This seminar examines a selection of artifacts that demonstrate diverse strategies in spatial, formal, and material experimentation by focusing on the representational practices of four architects and educators—John Hejduk, Peter Eisenman, Coy Howard, and Thom Mayne. These architects’ representational work between the 1960s and 1980s serve as the primary focus of the seminar.

ARCH 2022/6022

Second year studio concentrates on developed architectural form and design methodologies through processes of analysis, synthesis and transformation. Students work on the conceptual frameworks for their designs, with emphasis on issues of environmental context, urban design, and cultural and technological systems and their impact on architectural form. Different approaches to the making of form are investigated, along with principles of organization, such as spatial hierarchy, circulation, structure, and site relationships.

ARCH 2311/6311

An introductory course to 3D digital media concepts and techniques with a focus on the fundamental aspects of the Computer Aided Design process. Framed by a general introduction to digital media theory, students will gain fluency in a variety of software applications for the purpose of expanding the architectural design process. Specific emphasis is placed on the role of the computer as a tool for analysis, spatial investigation,and representation. Basic 3D modeling software such as AutoCAD, formZ, and Rhino, will constitute the majority of course content.
