We are very happy, that we can announce a first MOOC in the field of architecture at iMooX.at. The “Atlas of Digital Architecture” is the third MOOC of our excellence MOOC series at Graz University of Technology:
Digital technology and architecture have become inseparable, with new approaches and methodologies not just affecting the workflows and practice of architects, but shaping the very character of architecture. This MOOC is named after and based on the Atlas of Digital Architecture, a compendious textbook about the myriad ways in which computers are used in architecture today. Through a series of engaging, episodic online lectures and discussions, the MOOC offers an introduction and orientation to the fascinating and fast changing world of digital architecture.
The Atlas of Digital Architecture, the book that this MOOC is based on, brings together the knowledge of two dozen university professors and lecturers from the German speaking world, many of whom feature in this MOOC, sharing their vast range of expertise. The book was written by London-based writer Sebastian Michael who also acts as the presenter of the course in the videos.
This is the first of five MOOCs that the group is preparing to eventually represent the whole thematic breadth of the book. Each episode provides both a historical perspective and a conceptual outlook to convey a sense of continuity between past, present, and future. Going beyond the confines of the traditional textbook, the Atlas also postulates a theoretical framework for architecture in the 21st century, which is reflected in this MOOC.
The MOOC is mostly in English, though German is spoken in some of the discussions and lectures. Note that subtitles in both English and German are available throughout for all videos.
The MOOC will start on 25th of April 2022 and as usual it is completly free of costs. So we are happy if you join us there: [Register for free right here]
