NTU Architecture Subject Group

MAXXI MUSEUM

I graduated my BSc in Architectural Technology at NTU in 2022, I enjoyed the course and wanted to enhance my studies further to learn new software and tools. I have worked as an architectural technologist and BIM Co-ordinator for a couple of years, and I am eager to learn and grow more. This master's course provides a creative approach to digitalizing architecture and construction to allow a design to be efficient in energy, construction, and practicality. This has been explored through a variety of software such as Rhino Grasshopper, Synchro4D, Mass-Motion, and IESVE. Understanding and analysing parametric modeling, energy performance, 4D BIM and so much more, has allowed me to see architecture and construction in a new way.

MAXXI MUSEUM Re-Designed by Ariel Nash

The Maxxi Museum is already an incredible building, however, based on context and site analysis, an extension that houses educational facilities, a community area, and classrooms seemed most appropriate. Digital sketching, Revit, and Rhino Grasshopper were used to explore possible geometry, my intention was to ensure the extension blends in with the masterpiece of Zaha Hadid and complimented the existing form.

Digital Architecture and Construction

In line with the Construction Industry Council (CIC) 2050 vision for the construction industry, the course provides students with a comprehensive understanding of the theories, tools, and techniques used in digital architecture and construction. By focusing on the underlying methodologies and reasoning behind the software, the course prepares students to adapt to new technologies and software packages throughout their careers.

In addition to technical skills, students also learn design management and multi-disciplinary collaboration, essential for leadership positions in the field. The course's emphasis on sustainable design practices and historical building information modelling (HBIM) helps students develop solutions that are both environmentally responsible and respectful of cultural heritage.
