ARTT 023C. 3D Design II: Explorations of Wooden Structures

Wood is a versatile and sustainable material for many designers. This studio course provides the opportunity to explore the potential of wooden structures within an artistic framework of 3D Design. We will start by generating an understanding of the material properties of wood, and a particular emphasis will be placed on building technical skills with the MakerSpace woodshop. A project-focused approach allows us to expand our ability to conceptualize and construct increasingly complex and thoughtful wooden structures. The course will also balance a conceptual perspective of our work while considering the value of working with timber by hand, with machines, and through computer aided design. Readings, films, field trips, lectures, and group discussions will all help to challenge and inspire us throughout the semester and put our work into context.
Prerequisite: 3D Design I, Sculpture I, or instructor approval.
