Texas Tech University
Design Computing
Fall 2009
Instructor: Bennet Neiman

Digital Media is transforming the teaching and practice of design, offering new ways to see, think, study, and understand architecture. This workshop explores how digital media and physical material are used interchangeably as instruments in design environment. The computer is introduced as a tool that enables the study of modeling, light, shade, shadow, color, transparency, translucency, reflectivity, and texture.

The workshop uses a systematic approach inspired by the Bauhaus principles of craftsmanship and visual perception. A series of exercises stimulate intuition, experimentation, and analytic observation. The methodology explores the tactics and techniques of space making with particular emphasis on experimental factors.
