This subject is designed to equip architecture and landscape architecture students with a range of digital and analog tools for the communication of ideas. The subject focuses both on the improvement of students' technical skills and their capacity to think critically through a series of iterative exercises. There are three major components: lectures, digital labs, and studio sessions.
Students are expected to explore a range of techniques including:
- digital CAD drawing – the fundamentals of orthographic 2D drawing and 3D drawing, technical drawing conventions.
- digital and analog collage.
- hand-sketching as an analytical and exploration tool.
- multimedia communication strategies orchestrating different types of representation techniques. The exercises assist students in constructing a cohesive set of documents for the communication of architectural/landscape architectural thinking.
- verbal presentation – clearly communicate to a range of audiences.
