The course aims to provide students the main contents of descriptive geometry and its application, in order to make them able to translate the geometric three-dimension models of the architectureinto normatively correct representations. The course also aims to enable the students to understand the architecture through the reading of technical drawings and maps.
At the end of the course the student will be able to carry out a two-way connection between the reality and its graphical measurable model. This knowledge is essential for the understanding of space and its representation on two-dimensional support. The student will also possess the basic knowledge to master all the tools of drawing.
At the end of the course the application of the different methods of representation, made possible by the study of descriptive geometry and the practice of manual drafting, will permit the student to develop their own graphic language and its expressiveness in the specific field of architecture.
Independence of judgment
Due to the development of the skills of observation, visualization and expression of spatial forms through the mastery of drawing as a tool for reasoning and representation, at the end of the course the students will be able to identify for themselves the methods and the techniques of representation most appropriate for the communication of their work.
Since the representation is one of the leading forms of language for the communication of architecture, passing the exam, the students must necessarily have acquired the ability to communicate their ideas and projects through the drawing.
