Daniels Workshop for New Graduate Students

Mon, Aug 12/19 – 9:00am to Fri, Aug 23/19 – 4:30pm

1 Spadina Crescent

In this intensive 2-week workshop, the goal is to familiarize yourself with some basic and advanced design concepts and representation techniques. A practical understanding of the standard conventions of architectural drawing and representation will be explored by careful studies of a selection of precedents while drafting and modeling in Rhino 3D, editing in Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign along with a brief introduction to model-making and lasercutting in the FabLab, and Autodesk's AutoCAD.

Typical days will begin with an introductory lecture, tutorial and/or discussion, following afternoon worksessions. The first week will focus on 3D modeling and orthographic representation concluding with an informal pin-up on Friday August 16th. The second week we will touch on renderings, diagrams and physical modeling with a final review on August 23rd. This workshop runs Monday to Friday from 9:00 am to 4:30 pm each day.

The summer workshop is recommended for all newly admitted graduate students, especially those without previous design or architectural experience. The aim is to build up students' technical skills in order to allow more space for experimentation and conceptual development in the first year of graduate studies.

The cost for this workshop is $350 (CAD). Credit card is the only accepted form of payment.
