ARCH 3360/6360

This course will introduce students to film studies, particularly as it applies to the visualization, adaptation, and creation of space. Issues of film history, including the technological and social development of film will be viewed and discussed. Throughout the course topics of interest will be used as comparisons between architecture and film. Design exercises will allow students to shoot and edit their own short productions using digital video technology. The final project will involve a documentary using animation as well as other lessons from the course.

ARCH 3239/6239

This course will examine the architect’s role in the design of moon bases, under sea colonies, extreme environment labs, disaster relief modules and off world resorts. Students will study both the imagined (science fiction) and real (Freedom Space Station); including Shimizu’s proposed space resort, Virgin Galactic Spaceport and NASA’s committed Moon and Mars bases. The course will be a resource and research collection based class and will include a design component; students will work in teams to design habits for moon bases, under-sea colonies and extreme environments.

ARCH 1012/6012

As an introduction to the basic fundamental methods and principles of architectural design, students are given an immediate experience of the design process, developing their capacity to conceive, manipulate and analyze architectural form and space. An emphasis on verbal skills, and graphic and material techniques for architectural representation, enable students to express and communicate their ideas. The studio develops the students' capacity for critical thinking through constructive evaluation.
