ARH 170: Projective Drawing & Perspective

ARH 170: Projective Drawing & Perspective

This course aims to develop three-dimensional thinking and communication through the practice of rigorously constructed architectural drawings. Techniques involving line weights, line quality, and composition will be explored. Selectively applying transparency and articulating details that reinforce the building design will serve as tools to aid in the communication of design intent.
