Angewandte Geometrie

Georg Glaeser

This seminar delves deeper into the subjects of the course. Students have the chance to select several of these subjects, to research them further, and to present their results. A special emphasis is put on the ability to express oneself using geometrically correct terminology, in the clarity of theideas presented, and in the style of the presentation itself. This is… 2017S, Übungen

Angewandte Geometrie

Georg Glaeser

Thematically, the course covers planar, but mostly spatial geometry. Questions like the following are explained through a series of practical and contemporary examples. * Which types of projections exist, and what are their defining characteristics? * What are polyhedrons, and what special types of polyhedrons are there? * What are the simplest types of surfaces, and which of them can… 2016W/2017S, Vorlesungen

Angewandte Mathematik

Georg Glaeser

This lecture about applied mathematics differs from conventional lectures on this subject. Its primary main goal is to stenghten A-level mathematical knowledge, and to be able to use it in practice. Thus, we will avoid the usually strategy of definitions, theorems, and proofs. The book "Der mathematische Werkzeugkasten -- Anwendungen in Kunst, Natur und Technik" accompanies this lecture. http://sodwana.uni-ak.ac.at/math/einleitung.html 2016W, Vorlesungen

Darstellende Geometrie für KunstpädagogInnen

Boris Odehnal

Contents: Fundamentals of descriptive and constructive geometry. Parallelprojections, orthogonal projections, and central projections. Creating models. Aims: Students shall have the ability to create geometrically correct and proper drawings and constructions. Futhermore, self-made models shall enhance the spatial ability and enable ongoing teachers to create illustrative models in a cheap and effictive way on their own. 2016W/2017S, Übungen

Einführung in die Darstellende Geometrie

Sibylle Spann-Birk

Aims and contents: > projections and mappings > construction with ruler and compass, sketching and free-hand drawing > coordinate systems > correct visibilty > drawing and reading special types of projections (parallel projections - oblique and orthogonal) > construction in images (intersections, shadows) > simple surfaces of revolution and their properties > construction of points and tangents of intersection curves,… 2016W/2017S, Vorlesung und Übungen

Ergänzungen zum geometrischen Skizzieren

Markus Roskar

While Geometrisches Skizzieren is mainly oriented to single objects, Ergänzungen zum geometrischen Skizzieren gives priority to ensembles and how to embed objects into their environment. Teaching contents are: contour levels and space lattice multiple vanishing points special visual angles water planting integrating figures 2016W/2017S, Übungen

Geometrisches Skizzieren

Markus Roskar

The course is based upon the knowledge, acquired in winters term. Teaching contents are: various approaches to drawing: additive and subtractive, drawing with boxes, plains, plain- and space-curves, intersection-lines, grids.. mirroring shadows 2016W/2017S, Übungen

Graphics Programming I

Piotr Calvache-Modla

This course teaches the principles of computer programming based on the Processing graphics platform. Its official website http://processing.org contains numerous examples that illustrate its practical usage.We will continue exploring topics of graphics programming that we have started (during the winter semester) in the previous course "Introduction to Programming". This second semester will focus specifically on the fundamentals of object-oriented programming… 2017S, Vorlesung und Übungen

Graphics Programming II

Piotr Calvache-Modla

This English-language course represents the third semester of the cycle of courses started with "Introduction to Programming". We try to expand our Processing / Java programming techniques by discussung and implementing several exciting graphics programming projects in class. These projects depend highly on the wishes and inputs of the students. The topics we cover may include complex particle systems, agent-based… 2016W, Vorlesung und Übungen

Introduction to Programming

Piotr Calvache-Modla

This English-language course introduces students into the world of programming in general, and of Processing-based graphics programming in particular. It is popular among students of architecture, industrial design, graphics design, and art & science. In general, anyone who is interested in this topic is welcome. The course aims to build programming knowledge from the ground up. We spend a lot… 2016W, Vorlesung und Übungen

Künstlerische Perspektive

Georg Glaeser

In dieser Übung sollen Studierende, die nicht die "Hauptvorlesung" aus Angewandter Geometrie besuchen (Pflichtlehrveranstaltung für Architen und Industriedesigner) eine zwanglose Einführung in die Welt der Geometrie bekommen. Darstellung quaderförmiger, zylindrischer, kegel- und kugelförmiger Bausteine in Axonometrie und Perspektive, sowie das Erkennen solcher Bausteine in komplexeren Formen. Siehe auch www.uni-ak.ac.at/geom/geom (insbesondere der Anhang über das "Freihandzeichnen") 2016W, Übungen

Mal- und Zeichentechniken

Markus Roskar

The course is based upon the contents of the winter terms course and covers the depiction of certain surfaces and qualities. Teaching contents are: gradation and hue core- and castshadow matt and glossy surfaces synthetics and metal specular reflection transparency 2016W/2017S, Übungen

Maschinentechnisches Zeichnen I

Georg Glaeser

Studierende sollen die wichtigsten Darstellungsarten, aber auch die verwendeten "Kürzel" kennenlernen. Maschinenzeichnen hat seine eigenen Regeln. Diese stimmen keineswegs immer mit den Regeln der darstellenden Geometrie überein, sind aber durchaus wohldurchdacht und sinnvoll. Auch in Zeiten der computergestützten 3D-Darstellung hat Maschinenzeichnen seine Bedeutung nicht völlig eingebüßt. So kann man zB ältere Pläne / Machinenzeichnungen nur dann richtig lesen / interpretieren,… 2016W, Vorlesungen

Maschinentechnisches Zeichnen II

Georg Glaeser

Logische Fortsetzung von "Maschinenzeichnen I". Wieder sollen die Studierenden Unterschiede zur gewöhnlichen Darstellenden geometrie "Kürzel" kennenlernen. Dabei wird auf einzelne Spezialgebiete (etwa Abwicklungen, Zahnräder, Bearbeitungshinweise) eingegangen. Ein Schwerpunkt ist auch die Zeichnungssystematik. 2017S, Vorlesungen

Mathematisches Experimentarium Integration

Georg Glaeser

In this seminar, we tackle contemporary subjects with help from elementary, mathematical, but also geometrical and physical insights. Students are encouraged to develop an interconnected way of thinking based on the natural sciences. The practice allows students to devote themselves to a specifically chosen subject while receiving scientific, individual mentoring. This is not a compulsory subject! 2016W/2017S, Seminar

Individual mentoring of thesis students. 2016W/2017S, Privatissimum

Programming for Architects

Piotr Calvache-Modla

This course teaches techniques of computer programming that are specifically useful for architects.
