ARC 101 Introduction to Architectural Graphics and Design Communication

The emphasis of this course is the development of traditional graphic equipment usage and presentation skills necessary to communicate future architectural designs. Course work will cover 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional graphic construction and presentation techniques including axonometric and oblique drawings, 1- and 2-point perspectives, shades and shadows, and an introduction to model making.Prerequisites:ENG 5, REA 8 and MAT 9.Co-requisite:ARC 112 or permission of the coordinator.

ARC 203 Architectural Design II

The basic architectural design components of space, scale, and light will be covered through exercises stressing each of these design elements in turn.The student will discover 3-dimensional solid/void relationships, the infinite potential of spatial expression, the connection of the designed environment to the occupant, and the power of light as an emotive force in design and structure.The curriculum introduces the design and use of architectural structure as support and space definer. Prerequisite: ARC 102 and ARC 123.Co-requisite:ARC 261

ARC 221 Concepts of Structure

The course offers an introduction to the study, analysis, and mathematical solutions to architectural structures and the forces acting upon them.Topics covered include for vectors, moment and shear calculations, and the general stresses and strains on structure through an exploration of mechanical design principles and the mathematics related to the.Students will become aware of the deforming forces of tension, compression, shear, flexure, and torsion and their potential physical effects on building systems.Prerequisites:MAT 112.Co-requisite:PHY 115 and lab, or permission of coordinator.3 credits.
