This course investigates drawing as a means of architectural communication and as a generative instrument of formal, spatial, and tectonic discovery. Principles of two- and three-dimensional geometry are extensively studied through a series of exercises that employ freehand and constructive techniques. Students work both on manual drawing and computer drawing. All exercises are designed to enhance the ability to visualize architectural form and volume three-dimensionally, understand its structural foundations, and provide tools that reinforce and inform the design process.

COURSE OBJECTIVE
The primary objectives of the course are to explore various approaches to solving drawing problems both manually and digitally. In the first part of the course, the emphasis will be placed on developing the student\\'s ability to see and understand how to create life-like representation of real forms and how to select appropriate approaches and technique to create effective free hand drawings. In the second part of the course the students are expected to learn the essential skills in Photoshop in order to be able to develop a similar sensitivity in digital form.
