Architectural Perspective

Course Code C0191 Th 3 Pr 3 CrHrs 2

Introduces tools and techniques for illustrative graphic presentation of design ideas and products. Students learn advanced perspective drawing methods and practice simple and rapid illustration techniques in various media including graphite, ink, colored pencils, marker pens, pastels, watercolor, and collage. Suitable assignment(s) will be given to the students during the course.

Students develop an understanding of the concepts and manual skills necessary to construct drawings that accurately represent three-dimensional forms in a linear and atmospheric perspective. Students also become familiar with perspective techniques used to manipulate and distort representational imagery and explore how to use principles of perspective to emphasize content. Learning different methods for perspective drawing different shapes and elements. The course consists of two parts, theory and practical. At the end of this course the students should have the ability to:

  • The theoretical part of lectures on the basics for drawing isometric and perspective accurately.
  • Practical training on Isometric and oblique drawing.
  • Practicing on perspective with one vanishing point.
  • Practicing on two vanishing point perspective.
  • Trying to draw complicated forms in perspective view.
  • Drawing a 3D perspective for their architectural design project
