The course offers a practical framework for understanding the role of computing in design. It is an overview of the   
technological advancements that will influence the architectural practice in the next decade.  It also presents design 
methods associated with the use of CAD systems, from the analysis and documentation of design concepts, to the    
delivery and execution of complete design proposals (Spring 2006).

Goal of this advanced modeling course is to provide students with the skills to use CAD as a design tool. Emphasis  
is placed in the dynamics of the creative process: beginning with conceptual models and developing compositions
using architectural elements or components. All types of entities and techniques are covered, focusing primarily on  
solids (Fall 2005, Spring 2006).

Graduate course that provides an introduction to design principles by addressing their function in a theoretical and
practical context. The topics explored are not presented in chronological order, but are introduced to examine   
some of the fundamental issues of design. Design principles are grounded in all the arts (painting, architecture,    
sculpture, literature, film etc). The course is complementary to design studio and many of the problems explored
and discussed   are applicable to one's development as a designer (Fall 2005).

An overview of influential ideas and paradigmatic developments in the architecture and urbanism of the modern era 
from the Enlightenment to post-WWII. The presentation focuses on key figures, events, buildings, projects and texts
representative of important historical currents. The objective is not to study particular buildings and architects, but to
reconstruct the larger historical, cultural, political and intellectual contexts within which architectural ideas emerge
(Spring 2006).

The course offers a framework for understanding the role of perspective representation in design. It provides the  
necessary skills for mastering the perspective representation and its creative use in the studio. The broader aim
of the class is to enable students  to understand architectural space through perspective. It  also offers historical 
design examples associated with the use of perspective in the design process.  (Fall 2005, Spring 2006).
