COURSE BRIEF

Geometry deals with the size, shape and relative position of figures in space and helps us understand the world as we experience it. It is an indisputable part of design as it plays a key role from the initial steps of design process to the actual construction. A solid background in geometry is necessary not only for form-finding studies in architecture and design but also for accurate communication of design ideas. Architectural Geometry / Design Geometry is an undergraduate course offered to first-year students. As fluency in geometry enhances the cultivation and communication of design ideas, this course aims to help understand the fundamentals of 3D space and geometric definition of objects. Further goals include familiarization with concepts of geometry and techniques in representation: descriptive geometry. An advanced version of the course concentrates on use of contemporary computing techniques of geometry in design.
