ARH 651 Design Process and 2D Media

ARH 651 Design Process and 2D Media

Faculty: Jonathan Odom / Peter Suen

Course Description

This course will provide fundamental knowledge of two-dimensional media skills needed to begin an architectural design education. The orthographic conventions of plan, section, and elevation will be covered. Students will learn the importance of line weight and type, dimensioning and architectural notation in two-dimensional media. Students will learn how to relate a two-dimensional representation to three-dimensional space. Students will develop an understanding of the relationship between media and the design process and how the selection of the media will facilitate the development and communication of design ideas.
