The goal of this project‐based course is to engage with historical approaches to surface embellishment to design new architectural elements suitable for mass production. For the sake of this course, architectural elements imply versatile, non–structural, low–relief three-dimensional modules suitable to series production as castings, extrusions, or other techniques. Equal time and emphasis is placed on: Strategy—creating a legible and intentional relationship of new to old; prototype design—developing a module design that relates to its intended means of mass production; fabrication—making and displaying enough units to evaluate as an assembly.
