This subject is designed to equip architecture and landscape architecture students with a range of tools for the communication of architectural ideas. There are three major components: lectures, digital labs and studio sessions. Students are expected to explore a range of communication techniques including:
- computing – the use of the computer as a tool to aid communication of design thinking
- drawing – the fundamentals of orthographic drawing, three-dimensional projections, technical drawing standards and conventions, collage, and modelling techniques to aid the communication of design ideas
- freehand illustration – hand-sketching and its use for surveys and/or explorations
- model-making – an introduction to various techniques of three-dimensional representation and exploration
- presentation – the ability to present work verbally and clearly articulate architectural ambitions to a range of audiences, as well as understand the implications of different types of representation in the communication of architectural thinking, and
- multimedia communication strategies – the ability to strategically curate and orchestrate different types of representation techniques as a cohesive set of documents.
The representation skills acquired in this subject are fundamental tools for the communication of the design project developed for subjects 11211 Architectural Design: Forming and 11171 Landscape Architecture Studio 1: Forming.
