In this introductory course students develop an understanding of basic construction materials and assemblies, including foundations, walls, roofs, doors and windows, water protection, and finishes. Through a series of drafting exercises coordinated with the technical matter being presented, students will learn the basics of hard-line technical drawing. Selecting and detailing interior finish materials, including flooring, wallcoverings, ceilings and textiles will be explored. The objective is to enable a student to design more effectively through the understanding of material technology and the process of construction of interior space.Students with prior construction knowledge and drafting experience will be given an opportunity to test out of this class in the first class meeting (and will then have the opportunity to fulfill the 3 credits with Professional Electives).
