General Information

Main field: Architecture with specialization in Spatial Experiments.
Compulsory for: MARK1-spe
Elective for: A4
Language of instruction: The course will be given in English


This course aims to provide the student with a thorough understanding for the emerging field of digital architecture, and how digital tools for design and fabrication are reshaping the design processes used in the profession, now and in the future. The aim is to enable the students to use this knowledge and understanding to further their own design work in the course “Spatial Experiments II”. The course aims to develop the student’s ability to communicate and discuss theoretical concepts, both orally and in written form.

The course investigates the ways in which digital tools – for both design and fabrication – are being implemented in the world of architecture, how they are influencing the built environment, and how they can change the design process. The students study design precedent at academic and professional level, and relater these to their own work. The student presents the course as a written report, and through the integration of theoretical concepts in the design work carried out in the associated course “Spatial Experiments II”. Teaching as lectures, seminars, workshops, study tours, literature studies, and individual and group tutorials.

Examination details

Grading scale: UG - (U,G) - (Fail, Pass)
Assessment: Accepted assignments and 80% attendance at field trips and lectures. Mandatory attendance at seminars, and submission of written work. The examiner, with input from other teachers in the course, assesses that a sufficient level of quality is achieved in the written assignment. If a failing grade is assigned to the students, the student has the right to re-examination after completion. Examiner informs the student what is required to achieve a pass.
