This course is meant to help foundation and advanced students develop drawing abilities as they relate to interior architectural spaces. The class follows the decades-old practice of teaching architects and designers how to sketch as a learning and study tool as well as a means to understand and read the architectural environment. In-studio instruction and demonstrations plus on-site exercises in some of the most relevant historical and contemporary buildings in Florence will provide students with the skills to understand the physical environment around them. Students will be helped to understand the value of sketching as one of the most remarkable experiences for the designer in order to establish a useful and creative conversation regarding the project at hand.
SRISA studio courses will have personal and course materials to be purchased in Florence. A complete list will be provided with the syllabus on the first day of class.
