Class Architectural Design II

  • Presentation


    The curricular unit of Architectural Design II, lasting 1 semester, consists of theoretical-practical classes,
    lasting 5 hours per week. Given the current pandemic state in which we find ourselves, most of the
    classes will be taught in the distance learning system (e-learning). Among the various objectives to be
    achieved, it is intended: To bring the student of Architecture closer to the practice of the sketch
    configured as a creative process, referring to drawing as a way of thinking and communicating; Explore
    the domain of architectural space through the representation of the space itself, following varied
    approaches and strategies; Begin the process of formalizing an author's language.

    Reflection exercise on two of the artistic vanguards of this period, both in terms of the attempt to value
    Man over the machine, as well as the proposed graphic solutions. The referential and the observer
    (referential in motion before a static observer; static referential before a moving observer). questioning
    Cartesian dogmas.
    2.Tectonic vs stereotomic
    The architecture of matter and the architecture that seeks dematerialization and light. How to express
    one and the other through drawing.
    3.The image interpreted through collages.
    In order to develop an abstract thought in students capable of refining the conceptualization process of
    the architectural project, several graphic records of an abstract nature are proposed, which students
    should look at as an architectural sketch.

    4.Depth indicators
    Scale of the object, scale of the place

  • Teaching methodologies and assessment

    Teaching methodologies and assessment

    The presented methodology works on two fundamental fields - representation and poetics - that should
    underpin the individual language reached by each student. Drawing emerges, in this context, as a tool to
    build and represent architectural ideas. The drawing classes articulate a formal aspect of contextualizing
    the themes to be addressed in each class and consequent face-to-face production of the proposed
    practical exercises; All subjects will be introduced using pedagogical techniques based on practical
    examples, illustrated and / or by image and video. The student must acquire and use the materials and
    registration supports suggested for each drawing; Classes take place in a studio environment with
    monitoring and support from the teacher; Classes abroad and study visits are planned; Students are
    encouraged to register in the graphic form in a drawn diary format.
