Description: This course situates contemporary graphic methods (of inquiry and presentation) in architecture through an historical overview of information management techniques used by a range of architectural practices, from post-war to the present. A digital collection of architectural graphic formats and their building counterparts will be used to identify the synthetic, elastic, and pragmatic relationships between techniques of spatializing 2d information and the development of an architectural project. The course will distinguish and catalogue the various format types - how they are structure, how they are read, the technologies that facilitate them, and how they shape design procedures and effects. Organized through lecture prompts, discussions of readings, case studies, and graphic projects, the course is intended to advance a student's understanding of an ability to position their own architectural projects relative to an historic lineage of graphic procedures. Graduate/Undergraduate Equivalency: ARCH 333. Mutually Exclusive: Cannot register for ARCH 533 if student has credit for ARCH 333.
