In this course, students will be introduced to 3D rendering and modeling techniques within the context of international architectural practices. Students will be exposed to scholarship and research surrounding form, structure, aesthetics, and philosophies to engage in a design practice rooted in both societal context and experimentalism. Throughout the course, students will engage in theories around psychogeography and other design-oriented psychologies while studying international design practices through readings, guest lectures, and class-wide conversations. By the end of the course, students will develop their skills in comfortability engaging in an electromedia practice that moves from ideation and research into digitally rendered 3D environments. The course will culminate with students creating WebVR environments with their 3D renderings.

This course will be taught in Cinema4D.
