Visual Communications 2 (ARCH 121) Spring 2019

This course introduces students to the visual communication tools and methods used in the expression of architecture. Students will learn standard methods of architectural representation, analytical techniques for understanding and communicating the formal ordering systems of architecture and the use and value of precedents in guiding a career-long architectural investigation. We will explore experimental forms of architectural representation and methods that incorporate experiential aspects of architecture: scale, materiality, color, light, texture, time, and more.
Each student is given an architectural precedent to research and explore in a variety of mediums over the term. Each precedent provides a unique perspective on the domestic environment and will provide a clear and compelling framework for exploring experiential qualities and the larger cultural, social and historical context within which they were conceived and executed.
