Core subject



This subject is a comprehensive introduction to spatial and architectural representation. It is divided into two main exercises intended to familiarise students with 2D and 3D languages of representation. Graphic standards is organically explained and historically contextualised through interactive lecture sessions.

Students learn by practice and refinement the principles of orthographic, axonometric and oblique projections, perspective, scales of representation, composition, hierarchies and narrative construction. Students examine these principles by actively deploying processes that combine analogue and digital techniques.
