ARCH 1610 - Introduction to Digital Design Tools


Summer. 3 credits. Student option grading.

Satisfies departmental free elective credit for B.Arch. students.

Satisfies “any other ARCH class” for the architecture minor. Cannot be applied toward B.Arch. Architecture Science and Technology concentration. Does not satisfy M.Arch. building technology elective requirement.


The use of digitally driven design tools constitutes an important skill set for future architects, designers, engineers, and artists. Rooted in the emergence and proliferation of digital design culture, this course introduces students to the fundamentals of digital design. Students will become familiar with 3D modeling, parametric design, and representation through a series of hands-on workshops and tutorials. Students will visualize their design explorations digitally using Rhinoceros 3D and physically using fabrication techniques developed through their digital design tools.
