|Course Objectives:||Visual Communication Design II is an introductory architectural drawing studio to experience drawing the line as a medium of representation, both technical and creative for spatial constructions with architectural drawing instruments, surfaces and materials. It offers a speculative and experimental setting: a technical virtuosity, exploration and experimentation, analysis and re-examination.
Architectural drawing is a fully-organized professional language to reveal certain aspects of the building it focuses on as an object. It establishes a space for producing and developing an idea in the design process as well as a communication ground between the actors and institutions taking part in the construction phase. For an (interior) architect, drawing is one of the material methods of day-dreaming, storytelling, building, exploring, understanding, thinking, researching, recording, solving, searching, finding and getting lost.
This course deals with the act of drawing as a language in the context of architecture. First of all, it aims to discuss and explore the spatial and expressive possibilities and techniques of drawing, to make an architecture comprehend through the medium of line and drawing. Basic concepts of drawing, drawing instruments, freehand drawing and sketching, diagrammatic expression, architectural geometry, spatial organization and construction, scale and proportion, basic types of drawing and projections: parallel, orthographic, oblique and perspective, orthographic drawing set, place and topography, silhouette, detail, protocols and notations and technical drawing rules are taught. While students learn to construct a conventional drawing, they also deconstruct and reconstruct it, invent speculative ways to transform it creatively, to expand its boundaries, to treat drawing as a spatial research medium.
Taking a paper and a pencil to draw, not hesitating expressing oneself by drawing, and taking pleasure in drawing the line are among the main goals of the studio.
|Course Objective:||• To be able to use free-hand and appropriate technical drawing methods to develop design ideas and (re)present a design.
• To be able to produce a set of ortographic drawings that describe a space.
• To be able to express a spatial design according to universal architectural drawing instructions, rules and protocols.
• To be able to analyze a spatial construction by analyzing a drawing set.
• To be able to analyze objects and spatial arrangements geometrically.
• To teach architectural drawing types such as plan, section, elevation and axonometric produced based on parallel/orthographic projection.
• To teach architectural drawing types such as plan oblique and section oblique based on oblique projection.
• To teach architectural drawing types such as one point perspective and two point perspective based on perspective projection.
• To be able to use architectural drawing techniques in a creative, speculative and experimental way.
• To comprehend drawing as a spatial research, exploration and construction method.
• To enjoy drawing and not being afraid to express a design idea by drawing.
