Course Description

The Introduction to Architecture course provides a foundation for students pursuing architecture degrees to develop a visual literacy of the built environment. Using New York City as a living laboratory, students explore concepts of design, composition, construction, and public space through their direct experience of buildings and sites. The course contextualizes how the influence of cultural complexity can shape the built environment through lectures, laboratory work, and field trips. By developing their skills of observing, sketching, drafting, reading, writing, and presenting, students will display an understanding of key concepts and competency in presenting their work verbally and graphically.
