Details on the workshop to be announced shortly.

This 5-day workshop will help participants incorporate 3D modeling into the design process, adjusting the long held tradition that 3D modeling is to be used towards the end of a project for producing beautiful rendering
only. Two core objectives of this workshop:

  • Learn advanced 3D modeling techniques which deals with complex form and grading, etc.
  • Learn how to use 3D modeling as an interactive design tool; that when compared to the traditional 2D design approach (ie Plan, Section-Elev., etc.), saves time and minimizes mistakes early in the design process I note this poster is for the lecture -- he will provide a second poster after the lecture for the workshop.
