This course will focus on 3D modeling of complex geometric components in Architecture and design.
Concepts explored will concentrate on the advancement of digital design as an iterative process.
Various modeling types covered are: Parametric Modeling, Generative Modeling, Responsive Modeling and Form Finding.
Prerequisite: DC 3 or permission to take the course
