ARCD 110 - Architecture Studio 1 (4)

Students are introduced to all the major drawing conventions, learning to coordinate a range of drawing types and techniques from free-hand sketching to drafting by hand and with computer. The course begins with contour drawing (line weight, overlap, scale), then tone drawing (shade and shadow), then orthographic projection and perspective. It is a learning to observe and represent what you see kind of course and is preparatory for the more advanced design studios. Students are expected to keep a sketchbook, which they may use in conjunction with other courses, as a place to examine various forms of representation as part of their design process.
