Technical Drawing II


The introduction to technical drawing which  took place during the first semester focused on  familiarizing the students with the process of drafting  and with plans, elevations, sections, and sectional axonometric and isometric drawings.  
Building on these preliminary skills, the  second semester emphasizes making set of technical drawings of an existing building. The students measure draw the building and make soft line drawings on site and later translate them into architectural drawings in the studio. The exercise of building elements help them in deciphering a building. Other aspects of technical drawing like conventions of representation, looking at aspects like the uses  of line weights and an accurate understanding  of scale, but also developing skills in labelling appropriately. This is a shift in complexity, focused  primarily on working with methods of representation  for technical drawing at building scales.
