Rapid Digital Prototyping and 3D Printing (Print Course)

This course presents the benefits of creating digital and physical 3D prototypes in the design process. Several examples describe projects where prototyping assisted in design for land-use, site analysis, safety and sustainability. Three-dimensional prototyping and modeling can help create buildings that are better designed, easier to construct and safer to use.

Universal Design – Going Beyond Standards with BIM Technology (Print Course)

In order to achieve the goals of universal design, design professionals need to look carefully at both overall layout and design details from multiple standpoints. Many are discovering that the type of visualization and information that Building Information Modeling (BIM) technology can provide is invaluable. This course explores how a number of architects are using BIM to successfully create appealing and functional buildings that achieve universal design for all people.

Integrating Structural Elements for Innovative Design (Print Course)

Architectural design has grown increasingly complex with the evolution of structural technology. This course will explore how architects can use BIM software to take their ideas from concept to refinement to presentation and implementation while benefiting from seamless workflow, collaboration, and communication. The CEU will also address the various issues associated with modern building practices and structural complexity and present examples of projects that exemplify a structure-based process and mindset.

Merging Architecture and Landscape Designs (Print Course)

This article will explore the growing trend of fusing landscape design and architecture. Design that blends the lines between “indoor” and “outdoor” spaces is becoming increasingly popular both in an aesthetic and sustainable sense. This learning unit will look at the advantages of designing with a holistic approach to building and land, and the sustainability benefits of merging site design with architectural design.

The Rise of Temporary and Pop-Up Architecture (Print Course)

There is an increasing need for a structure, display, enclosure, or interactive space that can be temporary, flexible, and adaptable for different people, uses, or times. This temporary architecture, sometimes referred to as “pop-up architecture,” allows for great creativity and potential time and cost savings during the construction process. This course will look at some of the ways pop-up architecture has been developed, used, and admired around the world.
