Other comments
- Drawing skills are a fundamental tool for this subject, so it requires special attention in order to acquire the appropriate level. - Knowledge of modern theories about the Arts, Philosophy, and Science are considered to be highly useful, as they were essential for the avant-garde architecture from the twentieth-century. Interest in the Arts, including cinema and music, will be helpful as well -Required aptitudes are intellectual curiosity, talent for observation, abstract spatial awareness and sensitivity - Manual dexterity to build scale models is needed, being able to work with common materials to express different architectural intentions (heaviness/lightness, transparency/opacity, mass/emptyness, contrast…) is also fundamental.
