Summary

Key competences for every architect are the ability to represent ideas coherently and communicate a project’s aims effectively. Design, painting, photography, modelling and graphics are essential to the architectural project and become didactic instruments for the development of individual talent.

Content

The course focuses on experimenting with artistic digital image-based techniques for interpreting reality and transmitting ideas. The emphasis will be on image strategies and techniques for recording apparent reality. We will investigate image constructs that appear realistic, that are not based on a real existing encountered situation but have been arranged, alienated or completely constructed.

The core focus of the course lies on the field of computer graphics and computer-generated imagery. Various concepts and methods of computer-assisted image generation will be presented in a historical summary and will be illustrated and developed in more depth by means of application examples from the fields of film, video games, advertising, art and architecture. The students will then receive an introduction to the 3D graphics software "Cinema 4D", on the basis of which the course participants will develop a series of computer-generated still-life images as their final project. The course encourages the use of manual and digital instruments in engaging at the very extreme limit of the interplay between reality and fiction.

The number of participants is limited to 70 students. You may attend the course only once ¿ either in the fall semester 2018 or spring semester 2019. The course will be held in English.
