This course explores the different types of structural systems including masonry, concrete, and steel building types, plans, details, section, landscaping focusing on the commercial construction industry. It also covers the development of 2-D computer drawing and 3-D modeling.
As a result of successfully completing this course, the student will be able to do the following:
1. Get the knowledge of BIM (Building Information Modeling) and how to utilize it.
2. Achieve technical skills to communicate architectural ideas in an understandable, efficient, and accurate manner.
3. Design, analyze and explain the various materials and their synthesis in foundation, floor, wall, roof, and finish system of a commercial building.
4. Understand architectural programming and develop schematic design and construction documents for commercial building.
5. Develop and give a presentation of the commercial building designs with 2-D and 3-
D computer modeling.
MW 03:00PM ~ 04:00 PM, TTH 10:00AM ~ 11:00 AM or by appointment.

This course consists of lectures, lab assignments, personal project, and exams. It is highly recommended that you attend all scheduled class and lab sessions. Every student is expected to come to class prepared and to actively participate in our learning environment.
Lab assignments are designed to practice computer drawing and other activities covered from the lecture. Each assignment will carry a due date and time.
Late assignment will receive no credit.
Midterm / Final Exam
Consists of computer drawing exam. Drawing criteria will be set by the instructor. You will need to demonstrate your understanding using the software (Autodesk Revit
Personal project / Final presentation
The objective of the final project is to develop the design that satisfies the multiple design requirements discussed during the classes. You will develop a set of drawings that incorporates programmatic and site elements, but also integrates aesthetic, spatial and formal requirements into your design.
The final presentation is designed to be a means to demonstrate your understanding of the information. At the end of the semester, you will prepare and give a presentation on your final project.
Grading and Course Logistics
The final grade will be based on a combination of the lab assignment, midterm, project and the final exam grade, as follows:
A - 90 and above
70 - 79
D - 60 - 69
F - 59 and below
Regular class attendance is mandatory. Attendance is important because students will have problems in following on the next class if they missed a class. It will cause the delay of the entire class. Therefore, no unexcused absence is allowed. The students with unexcused absences will have their grade lowered by
point for each missed class.
If you anticipate having problems making it to class, I suggest you modify your schedule or whatever it takes to make it work. If you miss class, it is your responsibility to contact me or a classmate and get the material/information from that day.
