The Univeristy of Hartford Department of Architecture is growing! Our incoming first year student enrollment is the biggest ever. Our year-to-year retention is also at record levels. Consequently, we are looking for several adjuncts for the Fall 2023 semester. The following are the available courses:
ADT 110P Introduction to Architectural Graphics
4 credit(s) High Impact Practice: First Year Seminar
This course focuses on integrating lectures and studio classes to develop students’ understanding of the methods, media, and materials used in the communication of design. Students practice graphic and verbal presentation techniques.
Two lecture hours, six lab hours.
Section: Tuesday (T) and Thursday (R)/8:30a – 11:50a
ADT 231 Introduction to Digital Tools
This is an introductory course on various computer software and applications used in contemporary architectural communications. The course covers basic image processing, 2D and 3D modeling, and fabrication tools. The goal is to establish fundamental skill sets for undergraduate students to effectively use standard computer software and hardware to produce, represent, and print (2D and 3D) their architectural designs. Three lecture hours.
Section: Tuesday (T) and Thursday (R)/8:30a – 9:45a
Section: Friday (F)/9:30 – 12:20
ADT 232 Materials and Methods of Construction
Using multimedia lecture formats as well as construction-site observation, materials and methods of construction will be studied in depth. The consequences, costs, and technology of construction materials from concrete through masonry, steel, and finishes will be explored. Professional office organization and the integration of other disciplines are studied.
Two lecture hours, six lab hours.
Section: Tuesday (T) and Thursday (R)/6:00p – 9:50p
ADT 233 Architectural Design II (2nd year studio)
This course focuses on the design of small buildings with emphasis on schematic and presentation drawings and model building. The course will explore the analysis and synthesis of architectural form generated by program requirements, physical systems, spatial organization, available technologies, and review of historic precedents and aesthetics.
Two lecture hours, six lab hours.
Sections: Monday (M), Tuesday (T), Thursday (R)/2:10p – 4:50p
ADT 352P Architectural Design IV (3rd year studio)
4 credit(s) High Impact Practice: Collaborative Learning
An architectural studio course with a focus on the design of buildings with an increased complexity and scale in a contextual setting. A systematic site and environmental analysis and design of a preliminary master plan will be followed by an architectural project exploring the formal and functional fundamentals of design. Two lecture hours, six lab hours.
Section: Tuesday (T), Thursday (R), Friday(F)/2:10p – 4:50p
ADT 355 Strength of Materials
Theory and application of engineering mechanics are studied. The use of free-body diagrams and static equilibrium of forces is emphasized. Included are moment of forces, resultant of forces, couple systems, and transmissibility of forces. The relation between externally applied loads and induced internal forces within structural members is investigated. Analysis of statically determinate structures, such as trusses and beams, is studied. Axial, shear, and bending moment diagrams and their relationship are introduced and reviewed in depth. In the second part of the course, discussed are stress-and-strain distributions over the critical cross-section of structural members subjected to axial forces, bending moments, and torsion. Analysis of statically indeterminate structures using deformation compatibility is introduced. Beam-deflection calculation methods are discussed, with emphasis on using the moment-area method. Three lecture hours, and three lab hours.
Section: Tuesday (T) and Thursday (R)/8:30a – 11:10a
Section: Tuesday (T) and Thursday (R)/2:10p – 4:50p
ADT 358 Architectural Computer Modeling and Rendering
This course will take the student from initial architectural computer 3-D modeling theory and techniques through “walkthroughs,” “fly-bys,” and animation. The focus will be on creating presentations that represent project goals. The goals include space representation, materials selection and representation, lighting, visualization and presentation image hierarchy. These goals will be accomplished with a series of short exercises and culminate in a final project. The overriding focus will be on using computers in presenting architectural projects in the real world. Two lecture hours, four lab hours.
Section: Tuesday (T) and Thursday (R)/6:00p – 7:50p
Section: Tuesday (T) and Thursday (R)/8:00p – 9:50p
ADT 362 Advanced Computer Applications in Architecture
Using software currently used in professional offices, students will understand the application of the software and how the software can be interlaced; students will develop their own applications. Laboratory exercises will parallel lecture material. A culminating project will be expected, showing a major application interlacing the various software. Software includes CAD, spreadsheets, database, scheduling, graphics, and Web. Two lecture hours, six lab hours.
Section: Monday (M)/6:00p – 10:00p
