Arch 533 Material Matters
UG / G , 3 credits, Spring offering
This course engages students in a rigorous investigation of emergent materials. Students will research a number of new and innovative materials in an attempt to develop new architectural implementations. Any given material can be pushed beyond its current limitations only through an understanding of its properties, and the process through which it is produced. Material investigations will be reinforced by required readings, guest lectures, and class discussions.
