  • Master the modeling of curvilinear components with planar material and casting techniques

  • Explore ideas with mixed media, such as wood, found objects, metal rods and screens, clay, and Plexiglas

  • Work backwards from model information to produce 2D plan, section, and elevation drawings

  • Record and communicate 3D design work
