Addendum to Course Description

In this studio class, students will create professional presentation boards that demonstrate the solution to a challenging design problem utilizing a variety of drawings, materials and surfaces.

Intended Outcomes for the course

On completion of this course the student should be able to:

  1. Create professional presentation boards that demonstrate a functional and aesthetically pleasing design solution to a challenging design problem utilizing a variety of drawings including plan, elevation, and axonometric.
  2. Create materials boards in formal presentation format that demonstrate the ability to coordinate color, pattern, and texture.
  3. Demonstrate skills in verbal communication by presenting the design solution to others in both formal and informal formats.
  4. Demonstrate an understanding of the use of design concept and design process by creating an effective and well planned solution to a given design problem.
  5. Demonstrate an understanding of successful space planning concepts, furniture planning, product research, and rendering techniques to enhance the design solution and presentation.

Course Activities and Design

This course will be presented by means of lecture, discussion, demonstrations, and guest lecturers. The student€™s grade will be determined by a combination of studio exercises, testing, and class participation.

Outcome Assessment Strategies

  1. Create a set of formal presentation boards that demonstrate a well-designed solution to a challenging problem utilizing plan, elevation, and axonometric drawings; material boards; simple black and white rendering techniques; matting and other professional techniques to communicate ideas and design solutions.
  2. Participate in informal and formal class design reviews/critiques to enhance design awareness and communication skills.
  3. Participate in, and contribute to, all class discussions.
  4. Complete practice sheets of hand written architectural lettering to enhance drawings and presentations.
