|Discipline||The Built Environment|
Architecture is first and foremost a creative practice. The ways and means of both conceptualising and generating architectural forms are fundamental to the architect’s skill set. This short course will explore the use of generative processes in architectural design. Commencing with a published musical score - i.e. a piece of sheet music - participants will explore the material and spatial translation of their chosen musical score into compelling architectural structures. To guide, students will be introduced to simple hand-drawn diagrammatic strategies and 3D digital modeling techniques. At the completion of the course, each student will have authored a unique architectural proposal whilst in parallel be exposed to design practices and software used by students in their first year of architectural study at the University of Canberra.
