Students will contribute to one of the following studies:
In small groups, students will design a joint website and plan how individual work will contribute to a whole. Each student will be responsible for producing a Website including model components to share, a detailed 3D model of a particular room, building or site and interpretive renderings and multimedia.
For each class, students are to bring work in progress with final results posted onto a webpage. Assignments are planned to maximize sharing of class data, so timely hand-ins are important. The short descriptions listed below are preliminary and subject to revision.
With your partners, design an expandable web site structure, create graphical components and template pages. Flesh out the site with scanned sketches and background information.
Technical: Golive: publishing, text, color, images, links, image maps, rollovers; Photoshop: Web file formats, selection sets & image editing, layers; Studiodesk: collaborative graphics
Content: Sequencing images to create a narrative, Use collaged images to provide a sense of place
Working from photos, drawings and textual information, create modeling components to share and build a precise 3D model of a room or space. Integrate images of these models onto your web page.
Technical: Compare how two different modelers shape what forms can be created
Content: Structure a 3D model to foster analytical understanding of a building's geometry, systems or mechanisms
Explore how lighting, materials and textures can be used to interpret a 3D model. Upload images and models to share.
Technical: Compare different methods for rendering and displaying images
Content: Examine how lighting transforms space
Express the essential qualities of a space by using mixed media to create a personal interpretation.
Technical: Use lighting, viewpoints & animation to create a complete description of the project.
Content:To develop skill in using combining media to tell a story or make a convincing argument.
Generate and combine interactive elements to increase the impact of your site.
Content: Understand strategies for maximizing the effect of feedback.
Consolidate and explain your work for the term, coordinate your presentation with other class members
Technical: Package your information for a verbal presentation, reformatting as required.
Content: Examine how presentations can address different situations.
