Computational Craft
Spring 2024
Taught By: Elizabeth Stark
Section: A

CRN: 14416

Credits: 3

The framework and focus of the spring course is computational craft. We will focus on the role of materials as it relates to objects (specifically interfaces) and environments. A main question the course will continually ask is how much do the materials we use determine our interactions and relationship with technology? We will begin by examining how traditional crafting techniques can be interwoven with new materials and technologies to generate new behaviors and interactions. The second part of the course will focus on translating these ideas of interface and material to an architectural scale, exploring how computationally enhanced materials can define a space.

Open to: Masters degree in Design & Technology majors only.
