Foundations of Design: Representation
Coordinator: Scott Woods
Senior Studio Tutor: Kim Vo, Senior Technical Tutor: Michael Mack
This subject is concerned with building a foundation for design as a discipline. It is particularly concerned with introducing the role of representation within design and architecture as it is theorised, utilised and experienced within contemporary practice while considering its historical development. The subject aims to develop student's skills by encouraging careful observation and analysis of formal, programmatic, material, narrative and perceptual contexts using different forms of media.
Introductions to digital and hand representation techniques buttress broader questions including “why do designers draw?” whilst emphasising the importance of developing a critical understanding of representational devices and operative design techniques.
