This course explores techniques of spatial representation in order to develop a student's ability to think, draw, and analyze architecture and interior spaces. The course is a critical exploration into the conventions of architectural drawing, including: plan, section, elevation, 1-, 2-, and 3-point perspective, axonometry, parallel line projection, shadow projection, oblique projection, and descriptive geometry. These conventions are taught as both skills (how to) and studied as critical subjects in the construction of architectural ideas (why to). Students are asked to pursue both analogue and digital technologies simultaneously. Analogue techniques include sketching, hardline drawing, collage, and montage construction. Digital technologies include photoshop collage, graphic layout systems, 3-D modeling, rendering options, 2-D and 3-D printing/prototyping. The assignments of this course are coordinated with the architecture and interior design studio course. .
