Synopsis:

In architectural drawing courses, students learn to correctly perceive and „see“ shapes and masses in their proportional relationships, spatial context, scale and visual perspective. Models are first assemblies of geometric solids, then supplemented with draperies and other objects. The listener learns to lay out and optimally place the drawing in the format and to use view, horizon and runs to build the final composition. Ongoing instruction aids in pencil progression while profiling personal handwriting. The goal is to develop spatial vision and gain skills in drawing and sketching, which is indispensable as a means of communication in architectural design. Consistent attention is paid to aspects of shape and mass in space, the expression of light and shadow, plasticity, structure and differentiation of materials.

Requirements:

The number of permitted absences of a student is set at 3. Attendance data is kept by the instructor. Class attendance is a prerequisite for the award of graded credit.

In addition, a minimum of 13 drawings according to the topics assigned in class must be submitted at the end of the semester in order to be awarded classified credit.

The 10th teaching week is drawing the Clausura. Students draw an assigned exterior scenery (interior in case of bad weather) on their own without teacher correction. At the end of the class, the instructors select the drawing from the student and grade it along with the other drawings submitted. The grade from the Clausura represents 25% of the final grade.

A set of physical drawings is due in the first week of the exam period of the summer semester (the day, time, and location of pick-up will be specified and communicated to students well in advance via email and in class).

Grading is done by committee with the participation of all course instructors.
