This subject places an emphasis upon the use of Building Information Modelling (BIM) as a tool for design, development, documentation, and information management within architectural practice. This is further augmented by learning fundamental techniques for both illustrative and photo-realistic rendering as well as image post-processing methods. Other techniques covered will include diagramming, intermediate layout and typography, and exploration of immersive media such as Virtual and Augmented Reality technology. Design Communications: Building Information Modelling will integrate with assignments undertaken in the concurrent design studio and architectural technology studies.

1. To develop a facility with a multi-software workflow, including 2D/3D, image manipulation, and typesetting/layout software platforms. (AIA Tertiary Education Policy category 3.7.1 and 3.7.2).
2. To demonstrate a developed ability with parametric BIM modelling software, rendering, texturing, and drawing extraction (AIA Tertiary Education Policy category 3.7.1 and 3.7.2).
3. Ability to use design software effectively for representation and communication of architectural ideas (AIA Tertiary Education Policy category 3.2.1 and 3.2.2).
4. Ability to use design software effectively for exploration of architectural space (AIA Tertiary Education Policy category 3.7.1 and 3.7.2).
5. Develop understanding of key presentation techniques and methods (AIA Tertiary Education Policy category 3.7.1 and 3.7.2).
6. Develop an awareness of significant precedents in the evolution of architecture as a discipline based in analogue representation techniques to one that is digitally enhanced (AIA Tertiary Education Policy category 3.3.2).
