Accessing Architecture Through Drawing
This course has been cancelled for this academic year.
In today's architecture, buildings are becoming more and more spatially complex, as evidenced by such exemplars as Frank Gehry's Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain. Drawing architecture is a way to obtain a deeper understanding of the intricacies and subtleties that characterize outstanding contemporary buildings. In this seminar, students will learn how to draw freehand perspectives and to construct conventional architectural drawings such as plans, elevations, and sections. Students will draw with charcoal, pencil, colored pencil, and felt-tip pens. Once basic skills in drawing are acquired, students will have the opportunity to apply what they have learned to a simple architectural design project. This course assumes some prior experience in drawing or the desire to make a serious commitment to learning how to draw.
This course will be offered in Autumn and Spring quarters.
