About the course

The Structure and Material course is the first encounter in which students begin to develop the general skills and understanding that enable transforming a 2-D sketch into a precise 3-D model and realize ideas visually and physically. Students learn how to plan and create a model using various modeling materials, techniques, volume building, material research, color and finishing methods.The summarizing exercise—“Hybridization”—required students to select a product and source of design inspiration to create their own formative/design/functional or texture hybrid, or any other combination of elements that impacts appearance, considering product use, and executing precise modeling to scale.
