Withdrawal: It is not allowed to withdraw from this subject after the registration deadline.


Summary

This course reviews the basics of 3D modeling to establish the foundations of parametric architectural modeling via different methods. The main objective of the course is to develop a computational mindset to maximize the use of efficient digital tools in architectural projects.

Content

Keywords

architecture, 3D modeling, computational thinking, parametric design, coding

Learning Prerequisites

Recommended courses

  • AR-114 : Modélisation numérique
  • AR-219 : Introduction aux outils CAO en architecture

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, the student must be able to:

  • Identify the different modeling techniques
  • Classify these techniques by their degree of efficiency
  • Develop simple parametric models with Grasshopper
  • Develop and execute low-level Python scripts for 3D modeling
  • Propose an appropriate method to build a model

Transversal skills

  • Use a work methodology appropriate to the task.
  • Plan and carry out activities in a way which makes optimal use of available time and other resources.
  • Use both general and domain specific IT resources and tools
  • Demonstrate the capacity for critical thinking

Teaching methods

  • Lectures (1/3 to 1/2 of each session)
  • In-class tutorials (1/2 to 2/3 of each session)

Expected student activities

  • Participation during the course
  • Pro-active attitude for class exercises
  • Independent realization of exercises after each week

Assessment methods

An evaluation is done at the end of each week with an exercise to be handed in for the following week on the theme studied. Each test has the same coefficient in order to obtain a continuous control throughout the course.
