WORKSHOPS

PORTFOLIO +

This two-week workshop is designed to instruct students in skills for portfolio layout, the central component in graduate school applications for architecture, landscape architecture and related design fields. Students will also learn to write and edit their statements of purpose. The workshop will present examples of successful portfolios and introduce techniques for graphic commu- nication including image-work, line-work and diagrams. Students will be given direct feedback through one-on-one critiques as well as pin-up reviews based on the layouts they produce of their own work. The workshop will also include close editing of texts for the portfolio and dedicate time to both conceiving and writing a successful statement of purpose.

BASIC MAYA

As an introduction to MAYA software, this class will meet six times over two weeks to deliver technical expertise in using this complex digital modeling platform as an architectural tool. Students will emerge from the course with a strong understanding of the

how to handle it with precision and control. Skills for representing complex geometry will be honed to make each individual’s interests read clearly through drawings.

GRASSHOPPER AND PROCESSING

This course will focus on how to implement parametric and

algorithmic techniques into the overall architectural design process, using Grasshopper and Processing as the primary software

platforms

Students will have the opportunity to explore introduced

techniques through a series of short assignments organized within

five main categories: Data sets and Math, Transformation, Parametric Space, Deformation and Morphing and Mapping.

RHINO + REPRESENTATION

This workshop will explore a variety of possibilities for modeling complex form using Rhino as the main software platform. Students will also learn all necessary skills to develop advanced methods of 2D and 3D representation, from orthographic projections and rendering to STL meshes for rapid prototypes presentation techniques.

DIGITAL REPRESENTATION

As an Introduction to the March I Program at UCLA, this workshop will provide the knowledge and skills to develop proficiency in various modes of architectural communication

In particular, the course explores a wide range of tools and techniques associated to both digital and analogous ways of production to manifest their inherent complexity by underlying their processes of formal and organizational evolution.Highly focused exercises will lead to one of the ultimate aspirations of this workshop; to introduce new ways of thinking about form and geometry and consequently develop techniques that could be actively introduced and actualized into future design studio projects.

DIGITAL RENDERING

VRay; Mental Ray and Maxwell will be used as the main software platforms to develop various types of imaginery and architectural visualization.
