The module will build on a range of design communication and representation skills using appropriate media including personal skills involving discussion, negotiation, and team-working. Develops visual (drawing, physical modelling and digital media) verbal and written communication methods.
On completion of this module the learner will/should be able to;
Deliver visual, verbal and written presentations utilising appropriate language, terminology and representational graphics
Compile and deliver a presentation to a peer group and to listen and critically respond to the views of others
Produce orthographic and paraline architectural drawings aligned with studio design projects
Integrate the context, use and cross-referencing of design information in a set of drawings
Construct and utilise scale models, using appropriate materials, as a design development tool from concept to presentation stage aligned with studio design projects
Create detailed and accurate design drawings within a CAD programme
Generate design images from CAD models
Module Assessment Strategies
Formative and summative continuous assessment modes using a range of techniques which includes group and/or individual work mainly: drawings, essays, projects, presentations, debate.
· Diagramming techniques and annotation.
· Freehand drawing; sketch and constructed perspectives.
· Verbal and graphic presentation techniques.
· Cross-referencing of design information and integrating presentation packages.
· Orthographic drawing (plan, section, elevation) and paraline drawing (isometric including linear and curved/ circular elements).
· Research techniques.
· Model types and techniques; review of safety procedures.
· Models as part of the design process from concept to presentation. (Concept/existing structure/insert models).
