Assistant Professor Michael A. Ambrose and graduate student Joseph Kunkel (M.Arch. 2009) are in Taiwan this week to present a paper co-authored with two former UMD graduate students in architecture, Ben Callam and Luc Wilson. The paper, "How to Make a Digi-Brick—Design and fabrication of a masonry module: material, construction, and craft," will be presented in Taiwan at the 2009 CAADRIA (Computer-Aided Design Research in Asia) Conference.
This year's CAADRIA Conference explores the theme of "Between Man and Machine," and is hosted by NYUST University as part of the 14th Annual International Conference of CAAD and Digital Media Topics. Architecture Program Lecturer Carl Lostritto (M.Arch. 2008) will also present a paper at the conference. His paper, "Scripting Animation," discusses the design research and work of his 2008 award-winning thesis at the University of Maryland.
Professor Ambrose will present a second paper entitled, " BIM and Comprehensive Design Studio Education—Integrated Practice and BIM as Provocateurs of Studio Pedagogy." This paper is a further examination of digital education pedagogy and curricular development developed as part of Professor Ambrose's ongoing digital design media research.
