ARCH 1011

What are the fundamental principles architects use to create buildings? How can technique, process, and method develop a concept into an architectural expression? How do architects and designers, create drawings that explore and document the spaces they make?

Visual Literacy for Architects I is a 3-credit Foundations course required for all students enrolled in Temple University’s Department of Architecture undergraduate curriculum and serves as essential preparation for students interested in obtaining their bachelor’s degree in Architectural Design, Preservation, or Facilities Management. Students will be encouraged to explore visual, formal, and spatial principles necessary in the development of meaningful designs.

Emphasis is placed on developing students’ ability to author a relationship between production (the practice of creating) and expression (the practice of conveying meaning and ideas).
