This unit explores the use of computer visualisation as a representational medium of unbuilt works of architecture. It focuses on modelling and representing light, texture, surface and site. It introduces animation, techniques in post-production and the composition of renderings and animations with live footage and other computer graphic material.
The unit is specifically designed to create a series of works for travelling exhibitions. Students involvement in this process is paramount to the success of the unit. Each year a theme or architect is chosen as a focus of the research and animation and image production in the first semester and physical model production in second semester.
