Courses taught by Mark Mulligan
06121 [M1]: Construction Lab (SCI 0612100)
Lecture - 2 credits
This course is a module. It lasts the first half of the semester only.
Friday 10:00 - 1:00 Gund 111
Friday 10:00 - 1:00 Gund 110
Monday 11:30 - 1:00 Gund - Piper
This course will meet for the first time on Friday, August 30th, at 9 am in Room 111.
This module introduces students to fundamental properties and behaviors of buildings and other structures. Principles of design and construction are discussed in a comprehensive manner involving conceptual, historical, and technical analyses. Students learn to evaluate empirically various types of constructs and use analytical skills to enhance their design capabilities. Lectures will cover fundamental statics; types of loads and reactions; material properties and fabrication; types of joinery; classifying families of building structures; and other related topics. Abstract and architectonic exercises involving both intuitive and analytical design approaches will take place in a workshop format, with students working both individually and in teams.
06230: Cases in Contemporary Construction (SCI 0623000)
Lecture - 4 credits
Monday Wednesday 8:30 - 10:00 Gund 111
As the final component in the required sequence of technology courses, this professionally-oriented course develops an integral understanding of the design and construction of buildings and their related technologies: structural, constructional, and environmental. Building on fundamentals covered in GSD 6123: Construction Systems (formerly Materials, Constructions, Processes), the course looks in detail at examples of innovative construction techniques in wood, steel, and concrete structures. It also demonstrates the context in which technological innovation takes place by exploring the relationship of the design and construction participants.
Class meetings concentrate on case studies of recent buildings, which students are expected to study prior to class meetings. Detail drawings as well as issues of project and construction management are introduced for discussion. Computer applications on structures, construction, environmental control systems, and project management are an integral part of the course. Prerequisites: GSD 6123, 6125, and 6229, or equivalent.
