ARCH4710 Urban Design, SP2015

This design course will cover a range of urban and architectural design issues. Students will explore both the theoretical and pragmatic aspects of design applied in an urban environment. As an advanced design class, this course will incorporate previous studio and lecture coursework to tie together topics of urban planning, architectural design, environmental sustainability and historic preservation.

ADV 1100 Graphic Design Principles I

ADV 1100 Graphic Design Principles I

This is an introduction to the study of design for visual communication for advertising, graphic design, game design, web design,photography, illustration. Visual language does not use words, it uses elements as ideas understood by seeing, responding, recognizing and interpreting. Design principles govern the way visual elements are arranged. Color is a core topic of study as well as an element of design; its behaviors and attributes act as a major influence on perception and emotion. This course uses theory and practice to develop working methods and content. Solving problems as a process begins with research and comparisons of visual styles, trends, masterworks, and cultural influences. The development of visual criteria begins with sketching and representing ideas, articulating and presenting concepts, critical thinking as writing and speaking. Presentation, and methods of working are developed as skills and an output of several projects in a portfolio, in hands-on and digital media.

Visual Studies II builds on the knowledge of architectural representation and visualization obtained in ARCH 1111 and ARCH 1191. This course is taken in tandem with ARCH 1211. (Architectural Design II: Foundations), and focuses particularly on: precise crafting of physical and analogue models and architectural presentations, analogue and digital rendering techniques, and representation of geo-spatial information. The course provides the tools for students in their design work by strengthening their skills visually, verbally, and graphically so they may demonstrate their fluency in and understanding of key design vocabulary, concepts, and visual techniques.

Architectural Design II: Foundations is the second course in the one year foundation sequence which increases the student’s ability to perceive visual cues, create visual design, formulate concepts, and render ideas in two or three dimensions. Students will use a combination of hand and digital skills to aid in the creation and interpretation of three dimensional objects and space, and the delineation of the same using standard projection systems.
