221-320-VA, Project 1
In this first of four architectural project oriented courses, students will produce a set of construction (working) drawings for a small single-family dwelling based on lightwood framing construction principles. The student will be introduced to the methodology of the design process from the interpretation of an architectural program through design and design development to developing important construction details. The course is structured to approximate very closely actual practice. The student will apply skills and knowledge such as basic design and structural concepts, computer drafting and sketching developed in other courses.
