LAR-611 Drawing and Mapping

4 Credits

This course is a critical inquiry into landscape drawing, overview of its history, techniques, and conventions. The first semester of the representation sequence will introduce orthographic projection techniques in the form of elevations, sections and contours to produce measured line drawings and maps. The studio will work in analog (drafting) and digital formats to explore survey methods, notational concepts, and diagrams as well as hand sketching techniques. Landscape architects communicate and generate concepts through the act of drawing. The communication and analytic skills as well as drawing techniques acquired in this course may be utilized throughout the landscape architecture curriculum and in professional practice.
