This course will provide students with the skills required to progress from concept to detailed design. This stage is required prior to the preparation of construction drawings, which are used to communicate complex design solutions to consultants and trades. The detail sketching process develops the student's ability to turn design aspirations into practical results, while the student freely explores both idea and application. The focus is on the development of key design details taken from the students' own work, including sections, elevations and plans, in the preliminary presentation stage from INTD 5300 Degree Studio A: Healthcare. Then, through in-class lectures and labs, those preliminary designs will be taken to the next level of freehand-drawn details. This course advances and integrates the students' understanding of components and systems, such as materials, doors, windows, integrated ceiling design, acoustics, floor transitions and built-in millwork. Key concepts will be discussed, including detailing theory, articulation, expression, the relationship between the part and the whole, structural principles and material selection.
Upon successful completion of this course the student will be able to:
