Drafting 11


Topics covered will vary from year to year. Students will engage in a variety of learning styles and strategies, but mostly it will be a ‘hands on’ course. This is an intermediate level course ideal for students who want to explore the world of architecture, interior design and/or engineering.

Topics include: using advanced CAD techniques to design and create 3D architecture models. Discussions will include ‘Form vs. Function’, ‘good architectural design’ vs. ‘poor architectural design’, and ‘intended’ and ‘unintended’ usage of space. Emphasis will also be placed on hand drawings and construction of scaled models. Students will spend the majority of the class time creating individual and collaborative designs which will be added to their architectural portfolio.

Special topics: hand lettering exercises, drawing various architectural lines, and turning ideas into scaled models.

There will be optional local and international field trips related to course content learning.
