Form & Structure
0.50 Credit(s)
Students develop a visual language capable of shaping and expressing clear and creative ideas in three-dimensional forms. The course introduces students to the conceptual elements, organizing principles and creative processes used in the development of form. Using a variety of materials and processes, students examine the meanings and association of forms, along with the underlying structural principles affecting their creation. Central, too, are the relationships among concept, idea, form, material and process. Through questioning and a developing awareness of contemporary design practice, students develop the confidence to produce meaningful forms in three dimensions.
Notes: Required for Industrial Design and Material Art and Design students.
