The course is conceived as an introduction to architectural analysis and ideation for first course students considering different types of exercises aimed at graphic analysis and inventiveness. Students will progressively become aware of the graphic variables that characterize drawings and will gradually attempt the representation of space and its proportions basically through the study of architectural motifs.
The sketches are oriented to the analysis and interpretation of architecture itself, as an object that is perceived by us. Therefore they refer to an existing architecture within a specific place, with all the nuances implied; using for that same reason the conical perspective as an interpretative tool for analyzing the visual appearance of the architecture. Thus, the use of traces and hues as an evocation of the chiaroscuro and of the depth in space is essential to grasp the nature of the materials and finishes against which the light is worn.
Abstractions, however, are directed to the core of the objects themselves: they try to analyze the formal order and the geometric structure characterizing a given material reality, not the visual appearance we have of it. Seeking, therefore, the very essence of being against the appearance of the contingent. Abstractions derived from physical realities as well as from abstract concepts will be proposed to students as a way to achieve a thorough analysis of the essential towards the introduction of an ideation practice.
Finally, since the work of architects is confined to the boundaries of space, compositional strategies in space will also be explored through the use of models, always in the context of ideation in space.

Course will consist of 60hrs of in class work and 90 hrs of independent work outside the classroom.
