This course will expose students to a variety of methods used in architectural representation. Students will learn various techniques to communicate spatial conditions and concepts. Techniques covered include hand drawing, surveying, drafting, digital and analog modeling, collage, photo manipulation, and color theory. Although it is primarily focused on the acquisition of technical skills, this course aims to challenge students to think critically about representational techniques and demonstrate the connection of representation to the design process.

Through completion of their tasks, students will develop a solid set of skills upon which they can build in subsequent studio and media courses. Because each task in the course is designed to develop a basic skill set, all work produced in the course is expected to be done at a high level of proficiency. In addition to a solid set and a broad array of communication skills and fabrication methods, students should leave the course with a more complex way of perceiving the built environment.
