Design Mobility: Architects with iPads

Madis Pihlak (Penn State University)

A Fall 2013 and Spring 2014 class was taught at Penn State Stuckeman School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture using iPads based on the study of design mobility. The student body was almost entirely made up of fifth year architecture students. The seminar format was broad ranging and dealt with wearable computing and design device miniaturization (Goggle Glass, Apple iWatch and iBeacons). The research seminar was future oriented discussing the digital nature of design tools.
