UD231 CAD in Urban Design
Year 2, Undergraduate.
Our Empowerment for you
The UD231 course empowers students to be able to use digital media confidently to express their own interests and ideas in a project which combines urban design and architecture. Through the agency of a Canal Rowhouse Neighbourhood development, this CAD course allows the students to broaden their knowledge and skills in 2D and 3D software in order to visualize, communicate, and represent designs which raise particular issues about the urban commons and public spaces in private developments, as well as the indeterminate zone between architecture and urban design.
The project is premised on individual adjacent plots with a volume of 18m (length) x 6m (width) x9m (height), whereby students develop a rowhouse design based on Borneo-Sporenburg building massing. Students develop their own layouts and create their own facades, but maintaining a continuous passage on the ground floor. Houses were rearranged to create individual interpretations of the architectural-urban vision according to each student’s ideals. A final portfolio aims to reap the results of the drawing, modelling, and visualization skills learned during the semester.
