About this Event
Norwich University's Summer Design Academy 2021 will be a 1-week immersive online course, teaching students the essentials of design thinking and architectural composition. Over the week, students will design a small building, utilizing 3d computer modeling programs to communicate how it would be experienced and how it could be built. Hand sketching will be paired with digital design and a Norwich 'Sketchbox' will be mailed to each student. Each day students will explore their project through the application of a different modeling technique and architectural concept. Morning sessions will be devoted to learning the virtual modeling tools, beginning with technical demonstrations by instructors, followed by labs in small studio teams. Afternoon sessions will begin with lectures by NU professors, followed by individual project work, 1-on-1 desk critiques with instructors and ending with daily 'pin-up' presentations to the class. At the end of the course, students will have a portfolio of work they will display and present at a public virtual exhibit attended by parents, professors and local architects.
