Introduces the fundamental concepts of structural form and behavior through a combination of lectures and studio exercises. Basic structural forms and their taxonomy will be studied in nature and through history, using visual presentations, readings, and hands-on experiments. Load paths and basic load tracing through common structural systems will be investigated. An introduction to vector based force representation will also be covered as a continuation of topics covered in Physics. In addition the students’ studio projects will be utilized for assignments. The development of a strong structural vocabulary will also be stressed.
