Architectural Projection: This course introduces the beginning student to the origins, media, geometries and role(s) of projection drawing in the design and construction process. The student will learn systems of projection drawing from direct experience, and be challenged to work both from life and to life. Subjects such as transparency, figure/ground, sciagraphy, oblique projection, surface development, volumetric intersections, spatial manipulation and analytic operations will build on the basics of orthographic and conic projection. The course involves line and tone drawing, hand drafting, computer drawing(Autocad) and computer modeling(Rhino).
Project 1 started with four selected items assembled to create a group of still life. The shape, material, and the arrangement of these objects would become influential factors in the continuing projects.
In Project 2, certain techniques were chosen to present the infomation in the drawings such as tone, texture, etc. back onto the real objects from the same perspectives.
Customized measurement tools were required in Project 3 to be brought in order to create sections that are perpendicular to the perspectives of the drawings.
Drawings, models, and installation for the final project
