Course Description

This is the First Year Learning Community bringing together ARCH 1101 and ENG 1101 in Fall 2020.

ARCH 1101, Introduction to Architecture: Understanding architecture is achieved by developing a visual literacy of New York City’s built environment. Using the city as a living laboratory, students explore concepts of design, composition, and construction by sketching and writing about their direct experience of buildings. Focus workshops on freehand drawing techniques, basic drafting skills, graphic standards, 2D and 3D composition, writing about buildings and their construction, and reading architectural drawings are central to this course. Students develop graphic skills and the basic foundation to talk, write, and graphically express architecture and its construction.

ENG 1101, English Composition 1, is a course in effective essay writing and basic research techniques, including use of the library. College-level readings are assigned for class-wide discussion and as a basis for writing projects.
