ARCH 741: Design Innovation
This design seminar will explore cultural progression, digital design techniques and aesthetics that yield contemporary architecture details that contribute to Architectural Design Innovation. Innovation is not merely change. Innovation is effective precisely to the degree that it inflects culture. The longevity of any innovation is directly related to its ability to sustain and continually encourage its effect; innovation is change that people find useful or meaningful. Architecture design innovation is dependent on design techniques that form the pivot between culture and its progression. Design techniques affect the technical that influences technology and as technology improves it progresses culture and techniques are reinvented to continue cultural progression. As techniques change so does culture and as culture changes so do the aesthetics.
