How Design Intent Evolves Into Design Usage

Introduction

In today’s Micro-Lecture, you will learn about the differences between design intent versus design usage. It is important to consider each when designing both during concept formulation and later design development. By being conscious of your design’s usage possibilities, you can better fine-tune your design vision and its resulting outcome — even if re-design is necessary. This is how your design evolves for the better. Simply watch the Micro-Lecture to learn...

Using Architectural Flow to Innovate Your Design Concept

Introduction

In today’s micro-lecture, you will learn how to optimize the design of your concept’s architectural flow by learning how to give attention to the “between spaces” that exist before and after architectural features. By also focusing on these “between spaces” you can create better experiential flow for your building occupants. And this helps you tie your design ideas together to support your overarching design concept, which ultimately leads to...

Use 3D VIZ Models to Create Design Behaviors

Introduction

This micro-lecture serves to deconstruct the 3D Visualization modeling process to show how it can go beyond representation, to also become a more integral part of the design process that enriches architectural design for experience. In today’s video micro-lecture, you will learn about the feedback cycle where 3D visualization models can be used to inform design decisions about form and material behaviors. The diagram used in the micro-lecture shows how the feedback loop...

Top 7 Ways Your Architecture Prototype Model Can Capture Transience

Introduction

In today’s micro-lecture, I will teach you the top seven ways your architecture prototype model can best inform your design vision and decision-making when trying to capture the transience or changeability of an environment. These seven prototype modeling methods are presented along a spectrum that helps you to decide which method will work best for your design process needs. Again, the aim of this micro-lecture is to expand your design skillset palette, so you can see more...

Your Architectural Design Process: 3 Steps Toward Innovation

Introduction

In today’s micro-lecture you will learn about a critical feedback loop which improves your architectural design process. Marked by three primary steps, this improvement cycle diagram will prompt you to start thinking about how you can better integrate an occupant-centered approach into your design process. Additionally, you will learn about three key innovation points where you can leverage your results, as you renew occupant experience within your environments. This...

Urban Architecture – A Design Process of Co-Creation

INTRODUCTION – ADAPTIVE URBAN ARCHITECTURE

Urban design within cities around the world has impact upon the citizens they serve. As environmental designers, it is important to continuously evolve how cities beneficially influence citizens as they live their daily lives within these urban areas. A critical way by which to accomplish this is to design urban architecture within such cities so they cooperate and collaborate together to yield a relationship of co-creation with their...
