Architectural Drawing

Grade 10-12, 1 year, 1 credit, Factor 8, Course #6520

Architectural design and construction had its beginning when humans first modified their habitat to provide for shelter. Almost from the beginning Paleolithic caves were made more comfortable and even included wall painting. This creative need to both engineer shelter and apply art has made architecture one of the signature cultural barometers of civilization. Today, new examples of architectural expression, from trends in home design, new public projects, and especially exciting art museum designs are heralding changes and directions in modern art.

The purpose of this course is to give the novice architecture student an understanding of basic architectural design and drawing. They will study past and present building styles, architectural technical drawing, codes, and house plans. They will be able to read and understand basic house plans and begin using computer-aided drawing, CAD, in our new technical drawing lab.
