Course Content (Syllabus)
In this course the students learn about the function of representations in architectural design and familiarize with the techniques, the processes and the ways of creating them. The course deals with descriptive methods that support representation in two and three dimensions as well as with new means of computer aided representations. The teaching is based on the separation of the types of representation in different thematic courses and on exercises that relate to each thematic course. During the first semester the students are taught drawing, binary picture representation, orthographic drawing and twodimensional vector geometry. Each course is divided in two parts. The first shorter part concerns with the theory for each type of representation and the presentation of the different techniques of representation. This part is completed after a short discussion on the importance of the specific type of representation for architectural design.
