Course Spotlight: Digital Presentation II: ArchiCAD

This fall Abeer Sweis is teaching an ArchiCAD (Reg# V2551) course for those interested in learning a new 3-D approach to design. The class will take place Thursday nights from 7-10pm at the UNEX building, Room 621 and runs from September 21- December 7, 2009. This course introduces students to the emerging world standard for architectural software. This dual-platform (Mac and Windows) application allows designers to easily draw a floor plan and create a complete virtual building that automatically generates construction documents, full-color renderings. Prerequisite: Design Communication II and/or drafting knowledge. The class uses a Windows operating system, but you may use a Mac at home if you wish.

ArchiCAD gives you more control over your design while maintaining accuracy and efficiency in documentation. While you raise walls, lay floors, add doors and windows, etc this Building Information Authoring Tool creates a central database of 3D model information.

Fall classes: Electives, Seminars and Tours.

UCLA Extension Arc_ID would like to present you with a few of our many class offerings for fall quarter. First of all, we announced previously that we have a new class: SB1608 Disabled Access Seminar for Architects!  Taught by Nate Wittasek, this one-day seminar fulfills the mandatory continuing education requirements for architects.

We are also offering several fun One-Day Lectures & Courses. These include Feng Shui  with Simona Mainini, The Role of the Royal Mistress in the Design of Great French Palaces with Eleanor Schapa, an Introduction to Oriental Carpets with Chris Fager, and Creating Warmth and Drama in the Home with Light taught by Kathy Pryzgoda.

Finally there are several architectural development and home design classes being offered. These are great for those with more specific design interests, and can also be used to satisfy elective credits for students in our program. These include courses such as, Residential Remodeling with Paul Bially, Furniture Design with Patrick Alt, Kitchen Design with Donald Silvers, and Photographing Architecture and Interiors (online) with Douglas Hill. (Please note that some of these courses may have prerequisites)
