This course provides a working forum for developing creative thinking and critical awareness in design. It builds upon the skills and objectives of ARC 101, further examining two-dimensional and three-dimensional representation techniques for developing and presenting design concepts.  Cognition for formal/spatial relationships is acquired via freehand drawings, orthographic projections, computational drawings, perspective, collage, and design techniques.  Model-making skills are further enhanced utilizing various design media.  The course leads to a design proposal for a simple building and to the design and construction of a full-scale architectural detail.
