Special Topics in Architecture: Manufacturing Architecture

Barnard + Columbia Undergraduate Program

Fall 2012

Nicole Robertson, instructor

This course combined research into the history and evolution of pre-fabrication, rapid prototyping, full-scale digital output and its influence on the architectural design process and product. Using the techniques and concepts explored through their research and in-class technical workshops using Rhinoceros software, students designed and fabricated a series of objects using the laser-cutter and rapid-prototyping technologies.
