Fall 2023 Courses
MATERIAL TESTS: PROTOTYPING AND DIGITAL FABRICATION
This seminar builds on the class Material Logic to investigate and test landscape materials and construction methods with an emphasis on prototyping and digital fabrication. Students will learn to take an idea from concept to prototype to 1:1 construction. Through research, lectures, and site walks, this course will build student's understanding of current landscape construction methods and ask them to develop new materials and assemblies to respond to specific site and design considerations. Through exercises, students will advance their CAD and Rhino skills, as well as learn how to prototype ideas through the use of 3D printers and CNC machine.
Majors are pre-registered for this course by the department. Enrollment is limited to Landscape Architecture Students.
