Advanced Building Construction, Spring 2022

437 Building Construction

The Advanced Building Construction seminar introduces construction systems and techniques, with a focus on digital fabrication and advanced material studies. The course elaborates on contemporary methods of design, digital fabrication, and assembly associated with professional practice and research in architecture through lectures, case studies, and invited industry specialists from around the around. This course requires students to conduct research studies on new and innovative construction principles and explore the use of new materials. It also exposes students to new assembly methods such as pre-fabrication, robotic fabrication, and additive manufacturing in construction. Additionally the course focuses on case studies with an emphasis on environment, renewable energy, circular economy and sustainability.

In addition to the gallery below, student work and ideas from the Spring 2022 edition of Advanced Building Construction are available for view via the seminar's digital booklet.
