Landscape Design 6

Concept Development

This course explores the use of drawings as tools for visualization and design development. The focus is on developing an ability to use drawings to model and manipulate visual information throughout the various stages of design evolution. Techniques for examining ideas and concept alternatives through composite, perspective, orthographics and axonometric drawings are explored. Lectures present examples of built projects and methods of recognized professionals, which illustrate the dramatic influence drawing type may have on the final form or organization of a design. The course requires extensive drawing time; students must have already mastered basic drafting and sketching skills.
