title Binary Oppositions: Should an Introduction to Computing in Architecture Be Taught as Separate Course?
source ACADIA Quarterly, vol. 20, pp. 3-5
summary For quite some time, the traditional teaching approach by most architecture schools has been to separate design studios from other courses. New courses have occasionally added, to cover subjects not previously included in the curriculum. However, as technologies change and new, computer- based design tools are developed, it is worthwhile consider whether these new technologies should be introduced into the curriculum in the same way. Should courses be added to the curriculum, to supplement replace courses covering traditional tools and media? Or unnecessary or even inappropriate for the new technologies? This Binary Oppositions debate addresses this issue. question is, “Should an introduction to computing in architecture be taught as a separate course?” I argue to the affirmative. Glenn Goldman of NJIT argues to the negative. These arguments and our respective rebuttals are presented below.
