Syllabus

1. PROJECTIONS - FUNDAMENTAL CONCEPTS
1.1. Geometry, the grammar of drawing within space representation.
1.2. Principles of projective geometry and the relation with the perception of reality.
2. REPRESENTATION IN AXONOMETRY
2.1. Orthogonal and Oblique Perspectives.
2.2. Cutting method in coordinate planes.
3. PROJECTION OF SHADOWS: LIGHT FOCUS AND INFINITE LIGHT SOURCE

Objectives

Acquiring the concept of projection and understanding geometry as the fundamental basis of the drawing grammar of representation of objects and space.
Developing critical skills, methodologies and techniques in different processes of geometric transformations and their properties, as a means of reading, constructing, representing objects, space, territory and light.
Understanding geometry as a mental, critical and rigorous process endowed with fundamental tools and techniques for reading space and in the process of drawing.

The initiation to construction methods and homological processes of projective geometry will allow the student to consolidate the basic knowledge of double orthogonal projection and introduction to systems of representation for building perspectives.
At this stage the student will be able to articulate in the drawing practice and representation, the fundamental elements of projective systems for representation and perspectives in particular.

Teaching methodologies and assessment

The lectures are intended to expose the syllabus and to disseminate the theoretical foundations and exercises to develop in practical classes.
The practical classes are subdivided into two types of work: practical exercises that dynamize the theoretical problems exposed and autonomous project development where each student makes the practical application of the acquired knowledge.
The practical exercises will be oriented to: the development of perception, reading and representation of space and objects. Distributed assessment without final exam. The assessment is continuous and daily, implying the presence of at least 75% of classes in the set of practical exercises.
The final grade will be the weighted average of the project work (40%) and the exercises performed in the practical classes (60%).
