The teaching is concerned with the didactic-training activity inherent in the representation of Habitat, studying the scientific foundations of design, its methods and techniques, both innovative and in their historical development; detection as an instrument of knowledge of reality, its direct and instrumental methodologies up to the most advanced, its procedures and techniques, also digital, of metric, morphological and thematic restitution; drawing and visual communication as a graphic, infographic and multimedia language. "
The course includes the following study issues:
1) Elements of technical drawing; 2) Geometric entities and fundamental operations; 3) The model of double orthogonal projections; 4) The axonometric model (oblique and orthogonal); 5) The linear prospective model (with vertical, horizontal and inclined picture plane); 6) The theory of shadows; 7) The digital drawing and the habitat representation; 8) freehand drawing ;
These issues will be explored also through communications relating to the historical reading of geometric models and the selection of significant examples.
The teaching of "Habitat Drawing" is organized in an educational methodology divided into modules of "ex cathedra" lessons, thematic seminars, workshops and collective reviews.
The study activity is single, while the projects developed for the theme of the year (workshop) can be carried out in small work groups (see "Assessment methods of learning").
The work of the students is supported by the thematic seminars and expanded by the information available in the texts provided in the classroom and in the continuous references to multimedia and web sites.
At the end of each day of study (lesson, exercise, workshop, etc.) students must arrive at a partial summary of the work, which then will find further definition through the thematic study to be carried out during the hours of study independently managed.
