Product design and architecture have tremendous overlap in skills and knowledge in terms of their focus on aesthetics and experience. They are both grounded firmly in the practical realities of what it takes to elegently achieve a function and satisy a need within a limited scope of time, budget and resources. Despite these common elements, their execution has usually followed very different paths. Today, the tools of creation have been largely unified in the digital world, and the methods of production have become flexible enough that the same skills are applied both to the creation of an environment and the artifacts that populate it.
This class will explain what is shared and what is different between these two worlds. You will be given a foundation of knowledge in the tools of the industry. In transitioning to using 3D design systems for the creation of products, you will need to choose the best tools for the job, and choose the ones that can be most easily adapted to any role you might want them to play in your future work. Finally, the modern product design process will be reviewed.
I am an industrial designer with several years of experience designing both products and interior architecture. I am fortunate to have been exposed to both the digital-age 3D design tools used in product design, and have worked closely with builders, architects, and interior designers to apply those same tools in the context of architecture.
