In the DesignClass of a lifetime, learn directly from the world-class Morphosis Architecture team about how they translate ideas into dynamic buildings that move architecture forward.
You will explore the Morphosis process through the lens of the Dallas Perot Museum of Nature & Science as a deep-dive case study. This complicated, urban, and dynamic building provides the perfect backdrop to reveal the design thinking of this world-class team.
You will learn how they use everything from hand-made models to advanced software to solve programmatic needs and respond to the client and context.
Architect Eric Meyer reveals the model-making and study-model process that will help you and clients understand complex forms, construction, and design. You will even be challenged to follow along with Eric and build a study model to improve your own projects.
Kerenza Harris, Director of Design Technology, explores how technology enables Morphosis to turn its visions into reality. She asks important questions like: Can tech be a vital tool or a crutch? and Why is architecture more than just clicking a few buttons in Rhino or Revit?
Kerenza will challenge you to think differently about technology and seek to understand the decision-making and rationale behind complex forms.
