The students will produce one- and two-point perspectives, 3D model renderings and 3D massing models.

Course Outcomes
Upon completion of this course the student should be able to:

  • understand and employ basic perspective techniques in order to draw interior and exterior, one and two point perspectives;
  • understand and employ the terminology associated with perspectives;
  • understand and apply the variables that affect the outcomes of the perspective drawing;
  • understand and employ basic architectural modeling techniques in order to produce mass models in different mediums;
  • understand and employ basic use of 3D modeling software in order to draw exterior massing shapes or interior spaces and apply building material finishes or elements to them;
  • use reference materials necessary for proper design applications; and
  • understand and employ basic use of corrective imaging software in order to cut, erase, match, fill, and color correct photographs.
