INTRODUCTION

This course exposes students to the basic understanding of elements and principles of design. Students will be trained in all basic aspects of design, graphic principles, media of presentations, types of drawings, lettering, sketching, 2D & 3D drawing techniques, complete presentation drawings and model making. This course also trains students to enhance their creativity and perception through design process that involves the development of design concept, the application of design principles and problem-solving approach and thus effective communication of design ideas. By integrating the skills of design with the basic knowledge of structure and services, material, construction methods and simple costing, the transdisciplinary guided students are expected to be able to design objects and sustainable small-scale building from early planning stages right up to the production of presentation drawings with the clear understanding of the contribution of various disciplines in the built environment.

 

OBJECTIVES

The course aims to train prospective students in the field of built environment to appreciate the value of aesthetics through design that consider the various fields of knowledge in built environment and use it as an important aspect in the planning and creating of objects, space, and small structures in sync with the environment.

 

LEARNING OUTCOMES

At the end of the course, students will be able to:

~ Explore the design elements

~ Reproduce objects and spaces using design elements

~ Explain the applied design elements and principles

~ Explain the objects created or small scale building designed in relation to the basic knowledge of various disciplines in built environment
