Representation 1 ARCH-111
This is the first course of the required three-semester sequence in architectural representation. The focus of this sequence is to not only begin to understand the representational possibilities that are enabled by architectural drawings, but to also highlight drawing’s ability to aid in the understanding and simplification of complex form and idea. The primary goal of this course is an introduction to fundamental architectural drawing skills. The course enriches, extends, and supports two-dimensional drawings as a method of development, communication and exploration; Students learn to construct measured architectural hand drawings in a variety of mediums. Faculty presentations and demonstrations on various drawing techniques and applications and reviews of student drawing projects take place in the studio setting.
