The Laboratory of Drawing and Surveying aims to build the scientific foundations (theoretical and practical) of language of the design (and related codes); this is a discipline which represent the main form of expression of the architect. Drawing and geometry are understood as "vision and conception of the world", according to the theoretical assumptions of practice (subjectivity and objectivity in representation), the critique of knowledge in the event of the project, from concept to completion, including visual characters (and perception in general) as a design parameter. In this context the analysis of form needs to be fully understood - in all possible applications – as it is based on the culture of vision itself. The term Survey need to be understood as an "open system of knowledge": this will include documentary research and interpretation, together with critical reading of the object of investigation and direct surveying. At the end of the workshop the student will be able to use the language of drawing, including the methodologies and the latest techniques, to learn, to create, to interpret, to represent and to communicate.

The Laboratory aims to provide the knowledge and skills (i.e. the ability to apply the same knowledge) necessary to consciously apply the language of drawing. Knowledge of the methods of encoded representation of descriptive geometry and graphic conventions at different scales and in different stages of reduction, both at analysis or at project level, including the ability of critical selection in visual communication project as well as the control of the procedures chosen. Knowledge of the methods of interpretation analysis and the techniques for the acquisition of the existing metrics , also with reference to the traditional methods . Knowledge of the methods of graphic communication, written-graphic, even with the support of multimedia technologies. Ability to apply knowledge and understanding. Ability to read and recognize the geometric and architectural basis of the built space, both historical and contemporary. Ability to set up the stages of cognitive analysis with the target to show its peculiarities. Ability to plan, coordinate and carry out surveys and to generate geometric, architectonics or thematic graphic renderings realized at different scales, together with a critical selection of the proper tools to be used in the private practice. Ability to represent existing constructions and new projects through the application of traditional and innovative techniques, with a special focus on the latest development of the digital representation.

The Laboratory consists of three main areas: Fundamentals and applications of descriptive geometry (4 CFU), Computer-aided drawing (3 CFU), Drawing and Surveying (5 CFU). The Laboratory aims to provide the theory and the application of the design language into its many forms, from theory to practice to interpret the existing, manage the project and communicate successfully through the critical and graphic language. The course will consist of : • The drawing as a tool to learn, interpret and communicate design (10 hours) • Vision / perception (5 hours) • Orthographic projections, axonometric, perspective and theory of shadows (40 hours) • To represent the project (10 hours) • Analysis of graphic sources (5 hours) • Tools for the representation infographic (30 hours) • Survey as complex information system : to represent the constructed (20 hours)

Every topic indicated in the program includes frontal lessons and exercises, with the delivery of the elaborated products. Some works are individual, others are group work, to develop the critical attention to the sharing of a language and the attitude to team working methods, typical of the professional figure of the architect; the final exam is individual.

The bibliography will be provided during the lessons as thematic contributions to individual subjects. Additional materials, selected by the teacher, will be available on the Web-Portal.

Modalità di esame: Prova scritta (in aula); Prova orale obbligatoria;
The final examination mark is the result of the average (weighted according to the complexity of the different tests) of different assessment parameters: Evaluation of exercises and graphic tests carried out in the classroom Evaluation of individual exercises Evaluation of group exercises Written-graphic test Oral test To be admitted to the oral test you must have passed the written-graphics test (with a minimum evaluation of 18/30). In order to pass the exam it is compulsory to have done all the individual and group exercises, which must be commented on during the oral exam. During the oral exam the student will discuss his own graphic works, integrating the exam with further oral discussions and/or graphic elaborations concerning the themes of the Laboratory. The date of the appeal indicated on the teaching portal constitutes the date of the written test. The date of the oral exam will be communicated by the professor and, depending on the number of students enrolled in the appeal, can take place on the day of the written exam or in the following days.
