ARCH105 Architectural Drawing I

Credits: 3
Offered: Fall, Spring
Prerequisite: None

This course addresses the questions of how we have to draw and why we draw as we do. It explores hand-drawing and digital approaches to both abstract representation and simulation of visual perception. Students learn computer-aided drafting that is appropriate for presentation drawings and free-hand drawing as a quicker and more expressive way to outline study sketches, conceptual diagrams, and travel sketches. The course is divided into lessons and practical exercises on: 2D representation: plan, section, facade; 3D representation; free-hand sketches; theory and color practice; and rendering techniques with Photoshop.
