Embed Portals in Architectural Technology Design

Introduction

In today’s micro-lecture, you will learn about 3 technology portal types that can be integrated into your architectural design. By thinking about architectural technology design as portal integration, you can expand upon, and push, the present-day uses of technology to bring greater benefit to your building occupant. In the micro-lecture, you will what portal types exist today, and how you can design to push beyond them.

How to Learn from Building Design Concept Examples

Introduction

In today’s micro-lecture, you will learn how to pull more deeply from building design concept examples that you reference. It is important to not copy another’s building design concept, because your own design challenge is likely to be very different, with its own unique complexities, requirements, and opportunities. Watch this micro-lecture to learn three critical ways to pull from what building design concept examples can teach — to inform the way you go about...

Use Computation as a Catalyst for Architectural Innovation

Introduction

Within architectural design, computation is used in varying roles. This micro-lecture aims to get you thinking about how computation can be used strategically — to act as a catalyst that fuels more sophisticated and innovative design solutions. In fact, this micro-lecture showcases four key ways that computation can integrate into your design process to help throttle your design vision further to help improve your architectural innovation. Watch this micro-lecture now to...

Top 4 Ways Adaptive Architecture Adjusts to Occupant Response

Introduction

Architecture and occupants can engage in a two-way dialogue where each improves because of interaction with the other. Such a two-way exchange in real-time where architecture then begins to adjust to occupant response yields an adaptive architecture that aims to meet occupant needs. In this micro-lecture, you will learn 4 key ways that an adaptive architecture can adjust to occupant response to help solve for their needs in real-time. Watch the following micro-lecture to see how...

How Kinetic Architecture Fuels New Perceptions of Nature

Introduction

Kinetic architecture can use its transience to work with nature in ways that fuel new perceptions for building occupants. Using two key methods, kinetic architecture can work through perception and through behavior to re-present nature to occupants in ways they may never have experienced it before. In this micro-lecture, both perception through architecture and behavior upon architecture are explored as a means by which to spark innovative design concepts that...

Translate Project Design Research into Tangible Benefits for Occupants

Introduction

As an architectural designer, there are often many activities which you engage in at the preliminary stages of your architectural design projects. These project research phases can be optimized by knowing the right question to ask as you create your architectural design. In this micro-lecture you will learn exactly what that question is, along with how to use it as you engage in your preliminary design research. After all, the main idea is for you to translate your research into...

How Design Concept Fuels Architectural Innovation

Introduction

What boundaries do you push when formulating an architectural design concept? In this video micro-lecture, you will learn how to create architecture that is not only more innovative, but also life-changing for occupants. By understanding what to aim for during design concept formulation, you can maximize your design’s positive impact. This micro-lecture will teach you how to use this stage as a leverage point in your design process.

Architectural Design That Pulls Occupants Through A Journey

Introduction

Architectural features that are designed into your built forms can flow from one to the next — thus creating a journey for your building occupants. From beginning to end, your occupants travel through your building and this experience can be marked by memorable and sensorial experience. Don’t rely on signage to guide your occupants, instead use architectural features to prompt them, to inspire them, and to show them meaning as they travel through your built space....

How To Design Your Architecture For Occupant Growth and Change

Introduction

A critical question to ask yourself as an architect is: How will my building grow and change with and for its occupants? You see, an architecture needs to meet occupant needs and goals as they change, and in this video I will show you key ways that this can be achieved — so your building is one that is most relevant and valuable for its occupants.

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...
