EDAD350 Building Components and Details 3 cr.

This course investigates the nature of construction material and the inherent ways that materials behave, using these properties in small-scale design studies. Construction assemblies are studied for their logic and design opportunities. Students use industry conventions such as dimensioning and material constraints in designs to develop projects through drawing, models and building actual details. The work is developed in architectural, interior and industrial design contexts.

Prerequisites: Concurrent or previous enrollment in EDAD223 Architectural Design I and EDAD202 Methods and Materials. This course is required of all undergraduates in the program and provides a means for undergraduates to design and explore constructed building details.
