SYLLABUS

ARCH 340 VISUALIZATION 3 INTRODUCTION The three course visualization sequence seeks to position itself within an academic and professional environment of constantly changing design tools, representational methods, and technologies. Through the careful introduction of appropriate tools and methodologies, these courses are meant to equip students with a digital and analog framework that supports fluidity in process and reinforcement of the benefits and value of each through an exchange and overlap. Visualization III is designed to accompany and support concurrent Third Year curriculum. It offers advanced instruction of digital design, multimedia rendering, animation, and presentation techniques. These skills, much like those introduced in the earlier visualization courses, offer not only new tools for visual communication and representation, but also new methodologies for design and abstraction. A discussion of the way in which emerging technologies are affecting contemporary practice and process will act as a theoretical underpinning to all exercises. COURSE OBJECTIVES Lab 1: Review principles of parametric modeling (Revit) Lab 2: Review of soft-lead rendering techniques (lead on trace) & Introduction to surface modeling (Rhino) Lab 3: Introduction to principles of rendering and animation (3DStudio MAX) Lab 4: Introduction to techniques of digital presentation (Photoshop, Power Point) Lab Lectures will be followed by a series of weekly assignments and review to attain high competence in both skill and concept. PRE-REQUESITES Students are required to successfully complete Vis I (AAID-140), Vis 2 (AAID-240) and ARCH-327 before registering for this course. Portfolio work from Vis 2 must be submitted to the instructor prior to the beginning of class. ATTENDANCE + LATENESS Attendance will be taken at each class meeting and lab lecture. As per NYIT policy, more than three unexcused absences will result in withdrawal from the class. If you fail to withdraw, your instructor is required by the School of Architecture and Design, to issue an F for your performance. Students arriving more than 15 minutes late will be marked absent. EVALUATION Weekly assignments will be given and progress will be evaluated by your instructor based on how well you demonstrate the skills and concepts involved. A formal mid-semester review and final review will also be held as culminations of Labs 1 + 2 and 3 + 4, respectively. At the end of Visualization 3 course, you will be required to document and record your work in the form of a semester portfolio. The portfolio should be assembled as per requirements from your instructor and will be due following the conclusion of the semester. MATERIALS LIST Charcoal or soft lead pencil (6B), 12� roll of trace Computer [please refer to laptop policy for recommended hardware] Essential Software [AutoCAD, Revit, Rhino, 3D StudioMax, Photoshop]

SUPERTALL 1: STRUCTURE & CORE

3 LAB 2

1. Introduction You have been commissioned to design a ‘Supertall’ mixed-use tower (1000’+) on a hypothetical open site in an unnamed metropolis in the Middle East. In the first assignment, you and a partner will be challenged to construct 3D models of the structure and core of a precedent. These models will be used throughout the semester to assist in the design of the tower.

3. Instructions a.) With a partner, select a precedent from the list below, or one of your own choosing that meets the approval of the Instructor. Gather all of the documentation necessary to visualize and model the structural system and core.

3. Instructions a) Generate a minimum of two (2) perspectival, wire-frame views of your structure/core models. Print them on 11x17 paper.

1. 2. 3. 4 5 6 7 8

b) Overlay trace on wire-frame prints. With charcoal or soft lead, create at least (3) unique designs for the skin. Provide a minimum of two (2) renderings for each design (for a total of six (6)).

c) Select one (1) design. Scan the two (2) renderings of that design, save as JPG’s. d) Build a 3D model of the design in Rhino. Use the images and precedent models as references.

S.O.M

4. Deliverables a) Photocopied renderings (charcoal or soft lead on trace), minimum of six (6) on 11 x 17 paper b) CD with Rhino file containing model of building skin 5. Schedule Assigned: Due:

c.) Generate a diagrammatic, 3D vector model of the core. Included only the primary circulation components. Model systematically and repetitively. d.) Create a visual analysis of the building for presentation to the class. Format the presentation as a PDF document. Organize the presentation in two parts, per the assignment. NOTE: Do not include facade elements (i.e. curtain walls, glazing, louvers, etc.) in your models.

ARCH-340

4. Deliverables 1.) Graphic presentation in PDF format (minimum 6, maximum 10 pages) 2.) CD-ROM with .DWG or .RVT file of models AND PDF file of final presentation

Using the structure and core of your precedent model as an underlay, you will begin by generating a series of ‘gesture’ drawings with charcoal or soft lead. These drawings will be scanned and manipulated in Photoshop. The resulting images will serve as guides for the construction of the facade in Rhino. 2. Required Tools Revit, Rhino, Photoshop, charcoal or soft lead, trace paper (for 11x17 format), flat-bed scanner

1. Introduction The next task is to design the skin of the new tower. Your exacting and eccentric client insists on only one constraint: NO LESS THAN HALF of the total surface area of the facade surface must be CURVED.

2. Required Tools AutoCAD, Revit

b.) Generate a diagrammatic, 3D vector model of the structural system. Include all essential components (i.e columns, walls, slabs, beams, girders, trusses) Model systematically and repetitively: group similar elements, use layers to distinguish between families of elements.

1. Introduction The next challenge is to create an animation that demonstrates the structural logic and construction assembly of the tower. To do so, it is imperative to first learn basic principles of rendering, with particular emphasis on lighting and materials. This exercise challenges students to explore the vast potential of 3DStudio MAX as a conceptual design and visulatization tool in three and four dimensions. 2. Required Tools Rhino, 3DStudio MAX

1. Introduction The final task is to format and present your semester’s work in a concise visual presentation. The portfolio should be composed of only the best images, and should document the full process of design.

3. Instructions a) Collect images from each stage of the design process b) Use Photoshop to manipulate the images for final presentation. c) Create a template file in Power Point d) Using the images and the template, create a sequence of no less than eight (8) slides. For full credit your animation (from the previous lab) must be included within this 8-slide sequence.

3. Instructions a) Export your completed tower model (with structure, core and skin) from Rhino into 3DStudio MAX. b) Create three (3) still-frame renderings of your tower (in daylight) with three distinct cameras. (For full credit, these images must have compelling shadows and materials with properly-scaled textures. For extra credit, do the same for a night scene.) Save these still images in JPG format. c) Create an animation that approximates the sequence of structural assembly for the tower. d) Render the animation and save in AVI format. 4. Deliverables CD with 3DS file (containing completed model, three rendered JPG’s & animation set-up) and AVI file (of final rendered animation)
