Learning Outcomes of the Curricular Unit:
The course aims at the development and deepening of the different graphing modes already acquired on the discipline of Project I. The design exercises are given as a simulation of the real. Students owed develop survey instruments, research and design for the construction of the project. The design and survey instrument, analysis and representation of the place are a tool with which the students work throughout the construction process of the project.
Syllabus:
Design Project of an architectonic object.
Drawing Techniques and methods
The Human body and its relation with design project.
The Architectonic Drawing.
Regulations and stipulations.
Elements and architectonic objects.
Demonstration of the Syllabus Coherence with the Curricular Unit's Objectives:
The coherence is based on the organizational matrix of all the exercises/works both practical (EP) and theoretical (ET) that transfer to the student the program content through its solving process based on the above mentioned.
EP_ ONE FAMILY HOUSE - 75% (Project with two situation points and one final delivery);
ET1_SINGLE HOUSE STUDY - 10%;
ET2_READING LECTURE - 5%;
ET3_PORTFOLIO - 5%;
PERFORMANCE OF THE STUDENT - 5%.
Teaching Methodologies (Including Evaluation):
With the set of exercises and individual accompanying of their implementation in the classroom, one stimulates:
Sharing and collective criticism within the class
Deepening of the representation and communication instrumental
Consolidation of drawing in the process of project construction and place analysis
Identification of the individual process as a mechanism for permanent admeasurement
Decoding of the place
Discursive rigor of space representation and conception
Reference search/investigation
In theoretical/practical lessons expository, descriptive and demonstrative techniques are conducted.
In practical/laboratory classes, a individual and collective monitoring of students is carried out , where work is discussed.
The pace at which students achieve the proposed cumulative goals is verified through a process of continuous assessment.
Demonstration of the Coherence between the Teaching Methodologies and the Learning Outcomes:
The cognitive capacities and motivational factors are determinant in the performance and achievement of curricular goals and metacognitive processes that coordinate cognitive abilities, therefore the discipline of Project II insists that one of the basic principles is that the process based on self-criticism and practice is the means by which one reaches the project. This means that the Project II exercises are devices that allow the student to consolidate individual autonomy and increasing criticism. The course of Project II is founded on continued implementation of the various modes of graphical representation in parallel with the deepening of formal and personal knowledge systems that allow analytical, critical and theoretical support within the understanding of architectural design discourse. The use of drawing as a development tool of the creative and research process serving the intellectual mechanisms of constructing an idea and a project is critical to the formation of the student, thereby drawing will be privileged as one of the indispensable tools for the construction of the project process. The fulfillment of the reference framework for the learning objectives is possible through pedagogical practices based on continuous and ongoing monitoring process of each individual student and his orientation founded on rigor and requirements related to the methodology set out in the previous paragraph. This way the student can identify/recognize his weaknesses and strengths and consequently build up, under the teacher´s guidance, mechanisms the will allow him to evolve.
