This unit will introduce students to advanced architectural modelling workflows and visualisation techniques using industry-leading software. The unit is delivered through incremental project-based tasks that ensure a relevant context for the acquisition of knowledge and the development of professional skills.

Learning Outcomes

After successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

1. Digitally model complex space structures using industry-leading strategies and techniques;

2. Diagrammatically communicate complex architectural assemblies;

3. Develop and apply simple associative modelling and parametric design practices;

4. Produce visually compelling representations of architectural environments, assemblies and materials;

5. Interact with digital (CNC) fabrication technologies; and

6. Apply augmented reality technologies within architectural design and production.

Assessment Items

Contact Hours

Three hours of interactive workshops on campus per week.
