Media Studio 1 _ Sun W Hwang
Media studios are studios that re view and use existing and emerging media and seek directions for future architec ture. Media Studio consists of a Workshop1 , Workshop2, Computer1, Computer2, Documentation & Ima ge, Plan, 3-Dimesion, Expression of Concept and is a lec tures for the lower grade students.
Media Studio 2 _ Sun W Hwang
Media Studio 2 courses help student develop for understanding architectural drawings, handcraft, and combination of material-based architectural processes. 2nd year focuses on design studio, and students taking this module will find, research, drawand model se veral processes during the
lecture by taking Media Studio2. The term ‘Process’ in this course basically addresses students on recording their whole architectural process in e very week. This weekly based programme simply star ts to locate their sketches and materials on paper, wall, board and cross record through photo shooting and dr awings. The key intention of this process is to e xplore and draw architectural time pieces and combining15-week’s drawings, models, ske tches and
models in e xhibition space r ather than one single final pieces. Students then can get feedback and clarify their work throughout the whole 15-week and learn how to manage their idea, graphical qualities, recording techniques and de tails of colour combination. During the main courses students are taught variety of basic skills of presenting their architectural ideas, 2D dr awings, perspectives, collages, oil-paintings and other relative computer drawings.
Media Studio 3 _ Dammy Lee
This module aims to improve understanding on the concept of digital technology and the use of digital media. The class approaches computer software as a tool to develop and express ideas in the architectural design process. The emphasis will be on generating integrated 3D models with Rhinoceros 3D, and the potential information that they can hold and produce. Students will also be introduced to the basics of digital fabrication and multimedia post-production. Students will then research and test various digital visualization techniques using V-Ray plug-in for Rhino, Adobe photoshop, and Adobe Indesign.
Media Studio 4 _ Seung-hwan Lee
The purpose of Media Studio 4 involves an analytically based design, which employs computational methods to generate architectural forms based on data and performance. Students will be particularly challenged to develop optimal architectural forms that go beyond an emblematic exercise in superficial form-making. Students will learn how to utilize generative algorithm modeling as a novel computational technology. Students will first be introduced to the backgrounds of this innovative design approach, followed by selected theories and discoveries that support the process. By using the Grasshopper plug-in for Rhino, students will research and understand how forms can be defined and generated via certain algorithms and logics. While the form-making process will include creation and test of various versions, the form-finding process will also be exercised to pinpoint the most optimized option, in connection with specific add-ons such as environmental analysis tools.
