These requisites may not apply to students in certain courses. See access conditions.
This subject is for second- and third-year undergraduate students who have preferably completed at least the two communication subjects from first year.
This subject develops the tool of drawing as a powerful disciplinary device in architecture to both explore design ideas (creative thinking) as well as to express ideas to others (communication).
Through different exercises, the student develops the skill of creating narratives and the graphic tools to translate them into powerful, communicative drawings. During the process, the tool of drawing itself is explored as a medium to manage complexity and connect the world of ideas with their form.
Students gain an understanding of the narrative building process, its graphical translation, and the capability to generate graphic documents to express intentional information both accurate and suggestive, operative and seductive; skills to be applied on subsequent design studios as well as in professional architectural practice.
