This elective will involve modelling and interacting with complex urban sites focusing on modelling difficult terrains, both existing conditions and topographical manipulation. Students will investigate biomorphic/organic form making and representation techniques utilising procedural modelling using 3DS Max as well as plug-in and script use. Through investigating rapidly emerging digital modelling technologies, students will learn time-saving modelling, how to manage complex files, and how to move information between a range of software.
Throughout class, students will ‘record’ all that they learn with a ‘digital how to’ style manual. Students will be taught rapid knowledge capture techniques with the introduction of IrfanView capturing used with InDesign and Acrobat PDFs and video capture with Jing.
Assessment will be by coursework only
