Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

This course introduces students to the fundamentals of geometry, drafting, and descriptive geometry for spatial visualization in architecture—both analog and digital methods. Students explore the potential of drafting in contemporary architecture and, from a historical perspective, how the role of drawings has changed since the Renaissance, especially since the twentieth-century introduction of digital representational tools for design (2D drafting and 3D modeling, or CAD) and manufacturing (CAM). In addition to lectures, the course is divided into three exercises:

Exercise 1: From physical object and analog notation to digital drawing;

Exercise 2: Manipulation of drawings and 3D models;

Exercise 3: Atmosphere in architectural presentations.

(Tools: AdobeCreative Suite, Rhino, AutoCAD, laser cutter. Can vary from year to year.)

  • MOMA - Element 1, 1.5 credits, grading scale: P, F
  • MOMB - Element 2, 1.5 credits, grading scale: P, F

Based on recommendation from KTH’s coordinator for disabilities, the examiner will decide how to adapt an examination for students with documented disability.

The examiner may apply another examination format when re-examining individual students.

Other requirements for final grade

The learning outcomes are examined through the records of the design process, and through the outcomes of the course specified assignments. To achieve the approved level (pass) students must have approved tasks, including 80% attendance at lectures, seminars, tutorials and reviews.

Special regulations for completion apply. The rules for completion can be found on the programme web.
