ARCH 1001  Tactile Design in Architecture  (3 Credit Hours)  

At the root of the architecture discipline is the study of design. In this two-week course, students will focus on analog techniques of design utilizing hand drawing, mixed media exploration, and physical model making. The course will allow students to embrace the tactile facets of the creative process as a foundation of Architecture and its allied fields. You will explore the city of New Orleans with your sketchbook, experiencing the spatial, environmental, and cultural context of New Orleans, while creating beautiful work that will be digitally archived for your professional portfolio.

ARCH 1002  ARCH 1002  (3 Credit Hours)  

This two-week course will focus on visual and spatial communication through digital media. Students will learn the Adobe Creative Suite (Photoshop, Illustrator, lnDesign) as well as 3d modeling software to express their design ideas. We will explore the realms of digital design, representation, and production as a means of communicating information in a visual and compelling way. Students will have also the opportunity to create within our digital laboratory that includes laser cutters, 3d printers, a CNC router, and 3d scanner. You will work with innovative digital tools to compile a portfolio of work that is lively, relevant and professional.
