Computational Design and Modelling
|Course code ARBE3501||Units 10||Level 3000||Faculty of Engineering and Built EnvironmentSchool of Architecture and Built Environment|
ARBE3501 is structured on a design project that enables students to explore creativity in form making using various digital design and rapid prototyping tools and techniques. Students will have the opportunity to learn and explore the latest digital design and rapid prototyping technologies such as haptic design interfaces, parametric design tools, 3D scanning devices, interactive displays, and 3D printing equipments. Reflecting on the current digital theories as introduced in the course and with the assistance of the leading-edge tools and techniques as exercised in the tutorials, student will produce a design that satisfies the given design brief and with a form that challenges common perceptions about the design with creative interpretation, abstraction and representation.
