ARCH 210 - Architectural Design I

Credit Hours: 4
Lecture Hours: 1
Laboratory Hours: 6

Prerequisite(s): ARCH 135 

Restriction(s): None

Corequisite(s): None

Students are challenged to explore and utilize many of the fundamental theories and principles of visual/spatial dynamics necessary to develop meaningful architectural design. Emphasis is on both the form and idea of their design solutions. Students design, construct, and graphically document 3-dimensional models through a thematic series of increasingly complex exercises.

Student Learning Outcomes of the Course:
  1. SLO 1: Drawing Fundamentals Apply fundamental principles of drafting to the preparation of residential and commercial construction drawings, including plans, sections, elevations, schedules, details, and specifications.
  2. SLO 2: Design Conceptualization Demonstrate design conceptualization strategies, the process of design, and the development and resolution of specific construction details in the design of residential and commercial building systems.
  3. SLO 3: Presentation Techniques Employ traditional graphic means, both drawings and models, to illustrate and orally present completed design projects.
