AVA 140 - Three Dimensional Design 1

Course Units: 1
(Spring; Duncan) An introduction to the essential elements of form, space, structure and materials, with an emphasis on individual creative solutions. Class projects and discussions involve the nature and design of useful or functional objects, architectural form and space, and designing in an existing urban context. Course material moves from abstract design concepts to hands-on interaction with materials and application of principles to real-world situations. Projects for each student include conceiving and constructing a unique chair, and designing and building a proposal model for an imaginary “monument” on campus. We’ll use various materials including clay, wood, plaster, and mixed media. Work in and outside class is required; slide talks, field trips to museums or other resources, and class critiques are part of the class. No previous experience necessary CC: HUM
