Aims and objectives

This unit introduces students to the basic principles of project documentation using computer generated drawings softwares to document and manage a design project for different stakeholders. By researching precedent design projects students will learn the basic principles of two-dimensional and three-dimensional drawings, managing layers, graphic composition, layout and printing from Computer Aided Drawing (CAD) and graphic programs. Digital skills and knowledge learned from this unit will be further applied in digital units at higher levels.
 
After successfully completing this unit, students should be able to:
1. Explain the principles that support project documentation and when a particular drawing / image / presentation is
appropriate in relation to a particular stakeholders
2. Represent the key tectonic ideas within a precedent project diagrammatically in digital form
3. Evaluate the climatic response of a precedent project producing a shadow diagram generated and managed in 2D
and 3D CAD
4. Apply the key principles of two-dimensional, digital representation to the orthographic representation of a precedent
project and own projects
5. Represent the design intentions of a design project using a digital photomontage
6. Create a project poster presentation by synthesising a range of images using image hierarchy, a structural grid
and with appropriately chosen text.
