DSGN07054 2013 Architectural Studio Representation 3b
The module will build on the application of design communication and develop visual (drawing, modelling and computer-aided), verbal and written communication methods and evaluate appropriate application. Develop lighting and material skills in CAD programmes and image editing software.
On completion of this module the learner will/should be able to;
Debate design ideas within visual, verbal and written presentations, utilising appropriate language, terminology and representational graphics
Create complex presentation design drawings
Integrate the context, use and cross-referencing of design information in a set of complex design 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 and modify materials and maps to effectively convey design ideas within a computer graphics programme
Create and modify lights and lighting systems to effectively convey light and shadow solutions within a CAD programme
Generate photorealistic design images from CAD models and enhance them within an image editing programme
Produce realistic animations and walkthroughs within a CAD programme
