Visual communication is an important aspect of how we explore design problems and is critical to the clear and effective articulation of our design intent to others. Tools and Technology I introduces students to the fundamental techniques necessary to accurately represent and analyze space. Students will develop their ability to quickly and accurately record the material and light qualities of existing spaces, and deploy these techniques as they explore their own designs, ultimately helping them to confidently communicate their design intent to others. The principals of orthographic projection, exploratory diagrams, and perspective will also be covered teaching the student to represent space using abstract well as mimetic methods and helping to build a rich suite of representation techniques at the disposal of the student.
