This subject builds on the knowledge and skills acquired in the pre-requisite subjects, aiming at further developing the student’s critical and technical skills in the representation of design through drawing and model making. Students are introduced via lectures to a range of visualization precedents and in workshops to analogue model making, painting and drawing techniques. Scale models, perspective drawings and renderings are generated which can then be imported into the digital realm to be further developed. The outcome will be the beginning of a portfolio of images demonstrating the student’s capacity to express design ideas fluently and articulately.

Intended learning outcomes

On successful completion of this subject, students should be able to:

  • demonstrate an understanding of the professional, historical and theoretical contexts of the design visualisation within their chosen discipline;
  • utilise a variety of design documentation techniques;
  • critically evaluate their own design visualisation outcomes.
