As part of the Digital Technology sequence for the undergraduate program, this seminar provides the knowledge and skills to develop proficiency in various modes of architectural communication. The studio will examine how software environments impact on design production by exploring the generative possibilities and interaction between two-dimensional and three-dimensional virtual and material systems offered by advanced digital environments. Students were introduced to the fundamentals of three-dimensional modeling and associated computer-aided design for the production of digital models and drawings, and their subsequent material translation through several digital fabrication techniques, explored as abstract architectural constructions.

Together the studio will critically participate on the current debate about the state of technology for the production of architecture and will question the ideological and formal implications of various digital representation modes. One of the ultimate aspirations of this studio is to become a dynamic testing ground for the emergence of new ideas and techniques that could be actively brought and actualized into the design studio projects.
