Basis for Design - Drawing / Modelling

The aim of this course is to approach to the basis needed for design, as the sense of proportion and relations, measuring, technical drawing and modelling and, at the same time, to awake a certain awareness, comprehension and sensibility of the surrounding built reality.
The final aim is to promote and develop the capacity for critical observation and analysis, the capacity for synthesis and spatial understanding.
Design of basic spatial structures – market stalls – shelters.
