221-650-VA, Architectural Rendering
Students will explore various architectural presentation techniques, applying both manual (freehand or drafted) and computer drawing skills learned in previous courses. The techniques combine different media, such as scanned photographic images, computer generated models, digital photographs, freehand drawing and painting using various materials. The rendering concepts will be applied to orthographic and three-dimensional views. Both black and white and colour will be used. The study of lighting effects, and shades and shadows forms an important part of the course. Examples from professional renderers’ portfolios will be studied and analysed.
