Architecture & Landscape Design

Course Details

Mondays, Jan 7 - Feb 18 | 6:30-9:30pm | No Class: 1/21
ages 18+ | RISD Campus | 2019/CW-INDES-1039
6 sessions | 18 contact hours | tuition $425 | lab fee $30


Description

Design solutions are more easily found when the designer has a sound understanding of materials, systems and construction methods and when they are properly conveyed using industry-standard documentation software. This project-based course acknowledges both outcomes as students learn the primary tool for building professionals, AutoCAD Revit, to understand architectural anatomy. They gain confidence with the interface and Building Information Modeling (BIM) as they work in class and through self-directed assignments to create cutaway and component architectural views. Students learn the terminology and specifications of vast libraries of materials, and can expect to exit the course with competency using Revit, leading to a better understanding of structural, electrical, media and HVAC systems and a stronger portfolio.

Applies to: ID-R, PM-E
