In the first course of the three-part program, Fundamentals of Design for Digital Architecture, you will be introduced to rule-based practices and systems used to create infinite and complex designs beyond the limitations of traditional, pencil and paper mediums.
Assistant Professor and head of UNLV's Master of Architecture Program, Joshua Vermillion, will guide you through a beginner's look into rules-based design with Rhino3D and Adobe Illustrator, including how to utilize geometric properties like lines, and curves as the foundation for your digital drawings.
Exercises throughout this course will familiarize you with significant and convenient design tools and ideas such as geometric operations, graphic compositional principles, to visual hierarchies with line weights, tone, and poché.
Lastly, the coursework throughout this course will further solidify the previously mentioned concepts as you create process-based drawings through step-by-step instructions and gradually incorporating your own algorithms and compositional choices.
What Students Are Saying:
"Awesome course, the video explanations are clear and right to the point. 100% practical with drawing exercises from the very first session. I am an architect and I am learning new things with this course."
