ARCH 113 - Architectural Design Core Studio I


Prerequisites: None
A rigorous introduction to the fundamentals of architecture and design utilizing iterative exercises grouped around nine design topics developed and presented in two and three-dimensional media. Repetition reinforces the mastering freehand drawing, drafting and model making skills. Lectures introduce formal principles underlying each project group: geometric composition, scale and proportion, architectural elements, space definition, analytical diagramming, color, and solar orientation to study light and shadow. The emphasis is on abstract design but the course ends with the design of a scaled and inhabited space. Minimum Passing Grade: Minimum passing grade average of “C” required in ARCH 113-ARCH 114 .
