Visual Communications II (2) Continuing examination of two and three-dimensional graphic communication and modeling technqiues for an advanced understanding of visual communications in architecture.
ARCH 522 Visual Communications II (2)
This course introduces students to a wide range of digital drawing, modeling and output techniques and concepts that are essential for architectural design in order to formulate knowledge and expertise, and investigate their potential in architectural design studio. While providing a theoretical standpoint of contemporary methodologies, knowledge gained in this course will allow students to work rigorously and precisely through conceptual exploration, design development and ultimately meaningful representation of their design intentions. Skills developed in ARCH 521 will provide the foundation for work performed in this course.
The course will be conducted in the form of weekly lectures to cover theories and methods, and accompanying weekly working sessions, software and hardware demonstrations with individual instruction in the computer lab. Brief lab assignments will be assigned to ensure proliferation and adoption of course material. The coursework maybe coordinated with design studio (ARCH 532) assignments providing the students with the opportunity to master their digital skills in a meaningful manner.
Note : Class size, frequency of offering, and evaluation methods will vary by location and instructor. For these details check the specific course syllabus.
