Course Description

The study of architecture begins by developing a visual literacy of the built environment. Using New York City as a living laboratory, students explore concepts of design, composition, and construction in the context of the city by sketching and writing about their direct experience of buildings. Accompanying lectures focus on freehand drawing techniques, concepts of composition, writing about buildings and their construction, and reading architectural drawings. As a co-requisite of Design Foundations and a pre-requisite of Building Technology and architecture history, students are exposed to various styles of architecture and methods of construction found in the city. Along with developing graphic skills, students will build the basic foundation to talk, write, and graphically express architecture and its construction.
