ARCHT-2110: Design Media 1

Course Description

The first in a series of four Design Media courses emphasizes drawing culture within architecture, its history and contemporaneity, and the development of skills and techniques pertaining to contemporary drawing in conjunction with introduction to digital modeling techniques. The course emphasizes the idea that the act of representation is crucial and reciprocal to the design process as students develop critically informed positions and technically accurate reflections of their design work. To accomplish this, the class introduces students to the fundamental technical aspects of drawing communication, and to pertinent histories and theories of representation. Specific value is placed on form-making and formal abstraction, types and conventions of orthographic projection, and on line types, weights, and color. This is done not only through developing fluency in visual form but also by laying the groundwork to developing an etymological understanding of both form and its description.
