General description Architectural Projects 1 presents the fundamentals of the design project as the solution to particular spatial and functional problems. We explain the tools to create and describe an architectural object using the ability to draw as the characteristic language of architects. The students will learn how to describe the site graphically, the relationship between the architectural objetcs, and beetween them and their surroundings. Also, the conection between spaces to hold activities and the paths that connects them. Architectural design is the result of a creative process of each individual, and as such, subjective, personal and unique. Learning how to desing requires the ability to analyse, understand and interpret paradigmatic works of architecture to be able later on to transfer the knowledge to their own designs. Skills to acquire: 1 Deeper graphic communication 2 Composition of architecrural elements 3 Define the architectural object with rigour and accuracy, the whole and its parts, along with the relationship with its surroundings. 3 Comprehension and development of circulation paths: stairs, halls, entrances, corridors.
