DM4A: Architectural Rendering - Black and White


Architects and designers are visual people. This course is designed to enhance their ability to observe and draw the built-world. Through a series of weekly sketching assignments and exercises, the student will be asked to document materials, textures, tones, reflections, light and shade and shadow. Knowing the ramifications of the way nature interacts with the palette of materials we have at our disposal, makes us better designers. The work will be done in black and white with a wax-based pencil. These exercises will then have a direct application to finished architectural renderings using photographs or the students' own design work as inspiration. Leading work in the field of architectural rendering will be examined as a point of departure for the student. The natural companion to this course is Architectural Rendering: Color Techniques offered by the instructor on alternating semesters.
