  • Objectives


    Students will have sufficient knowledge of the various materials to begin to guide their studies and design concepts and have a sense of what they should use where they are used and how they are used and to understand what architecture is. They will know the combination of basic legislation with creativity and that architecture is not just design and form, but a set of disciplines, means and also rules for successfully completing a program. The advantage of the outline and the intermediate phases before the final project. Understand and analyze the costs involved and have the notion of sustainability in all concurrent steps.

  • Teaching methodologies and assessment

    Teaching methodologies and assessment

    Theoretical and practical aspects very accentuated in the course of classes with the supervision of the Teacher - Theoretical explanation, schemes, drawings. Power Point and execution of regular works diversifying the form of the perception of Architecture through drawing with manual and expeditious representation for the development of creativity, training, artistic sensitivity and scale.

    - Scales 1: 50/1: 20/1: 1. Comparison of construction elements at scale and in natural size - representation and comparison of the general with the particular. Graphical representation of the parts of a Project and construction elements.

    Weighting in the final grade - individual works from zero to twenty:

    1 - executed in the classroom

    2 - executed in the classroom

    TOTAL - average

    Notes: Attendance in this continuous assessment is mandatory for at least 75% of classes
