|Brief Handbook Description:||Architectural Communications 2 particularly explores the roles that digital technology can play in contemporary architectural communication. It revisits graphic representation, modelling and verbal and written communication through the lens of computer-aided operations. This unit of study equips students with skills in digital drafting and modelling, texture mapping, lighting, rendering and digital fabrication, and encourages their creative deployment in an iterative design project.|
|T&L Activities:||Lectures: Lectures 1 hr/wk; Tutorials 4 hr/wk
