TES 112E - Visual Communication I

Course Objectives

TES112E Visual Communication 1 course aims to increase the interaction
and coordination between the mind and hand. It will be the vital tool to
develop and improve your design ideas. Communicating is via sketches,
perspectives, use of images, renderings, texts; communicating will work
for two partners: allows you to see; and for other people to whom you
want to describe your ideas.
The studio will concentrate on introducing you to the media and give you
critical experience on how to use it effectively: you will sketch to
externalize ideas, draw to map and represent, and then produce and re-produce these productions into eloquent graphics. This semester will
provide a solid, heartfelt, and hand-felt foundation of various techniques
and approaches to both visualization and representation, of ideas,
processes, and relationships. Hence, the course forms a basis for your
future development as a planner and designer.
Besides visualization and communication of ideas, two major issues to be
covered are “graphics” and “technical drawing”. You will be introduced
to the fundamental concepts of graphics – the issues related to the
performance of the various elements of a visual or artboard. Technical
Drawing on the other hand will allow you to develop your skills in 3D
thinking, handling an object in its physicality and in Cartesian space, and
effectively mapping formal properties. This will be a fundamental basis
for you to understand and communicate – in an architectural manner –
various archetypal forms in context and in scale.

Course Description

In this course, starting from basic elements of design which are Line,
form, color, texture, shade, basic and complex geometries various
graphical and technical representation techniques will be executed. As
this course is a foundation course which aims to improve visualization
and technical drawing skills, it is expected from students to draw sketches
through the semester in addition to the weekly studio works.
Dimensions and scale, isometric and artistic perspective, visualization,
basic graphical elements; composition, collage are subjects of this
semester. Added to the principles and techniques of Projection, Sections
Elevations, Markers and Symbols, Drawing of Structural Elements by
hand and representation techniques will be introduced. This course
includes several studio exercises and 10 studies to submit and builds a
relation with the project studio work. The assessment of each studio
exercises is executed separately.
Additional to the studio studies, there will be a general technical drawing
exam across all Sections in the 13th week (Dec.16) of the course calendar.
It will comprise 10% of the course grade.
