The freehand drawing is the first tool used in designing a building, the daily practice of the architectural design process. In the age of computers, despite its visibility has decreased, freehand drawings have become even more precious; its role in communicating our ideas and thoughts gives us the opportunity to make use of the simplest intuitive connection between our mind and the hand through exercising our bidimensional skills in order to represent a tridimensional universe.
The class will be organised upon the traditional still life drawing technique in atelier/workshop. The student is placed at a distance from the still figure that allows them to place their easel and paper next to the object to be represented. The drawing and the object will be the same size, which allows for easier comparison of distances and angles carefully measured.
We will learn the hatching technique used to create tonal or shading effects, and other techniques of drawing volumes: layer tinting, texturing and form lines. The main medium is graphite pencil on paper.
The class includes advanced notions of descriptive geometry and perspective.
As architect and former university associate professor of architectural project design and study of form, with an experience over two decades, my aim is to increase in students’ competencies, the skills helpful to motivate themselves to meet design demands in their (future) profession as architects, with confidence and a positive attitude.
The class has 2 hours, the materials are provided by the atelier. The class will be organised in 4 phases, each having 5 sessions of 2 hours, the first 3 phases are engaging the traditional still life drawing technique in atelier method. The fourth phase corresponds to the architectural sketching upon project (firstly we will draw an iconic masterpiece).
