ARCH 110 is a foundation course in graphic practice. Students will be introduced to techniques, conventions, and theories of graphic communication and visual representation in the design disciplines, including orthographic and paraline drawing, diagramming, mixed media, and digital media. Although course content focuses primarily on the technical skills required to communicate the space and substance of buildings and/or site, it also asks students to consider the act of drawing as a possible end in itself. Drawing is understood as the primary means through which architecture is communicated and documented; however, this course proposes that drawing is also an act of seeing, reading, thinking, and designing. This course also serves as a conceptual and strategic foundation for more advanced digital representation.
