Short description: Practical and theoretical classes for begginers. Student should prepare the standard drawing documentation (architectural drawings) based on the delivered catalogue conceptual commercial design of the single family house with an attic floor. Drawings must be prepared using traditional techniques (free-hand drawing ) or using the CAD application which includes: ground floor plan, attic floor plan, cross section of a house, two facades with surrounding vegetation, perspective view (hand drawing). The scale of the drawings is 1:50. Additional Information: Students use their own tech (in a classroom/blended-learning) and an English version of the Graphisoft Archicad 64 bit software (Student version avaible on-line free of charge).
Full description: Ability to use accurate line weights and types while drawing lines to visualize the representation of the object and to prepare a correct engineering drawings regarding to the architectural standards. Components of the architectural drawing including: floor plans, cross sections, facades and free-hand drawing visualization. Creating dimensions and annotations, sections, plans in terms of the scale and detailing. Graphic representation of the components of architectural drawing (interior furnishing, windows, doors, ventilation facilities etc.)
