course objectives
The course aims to teach students to the various forms of application of fundamental compositional instruments and the vocabulary of visual expression, including forms, colors, textures, materials, and lighting effects. It also introduces innovative methodologies for architectural form creation, and visual presentation, by blending manual and digital techniques.

hybrid manual and digital anchitectural visualization
Artistic architectural perspective renderings with hybrid techniques - traditional manual drawing + digital collage

experimental form and space creation
Space & light, compositional exercises, spatial modelling - digital photo, video study.

digital communication
Logotype design from name/initials, graphical layout of the semester's works, model photos, drawings, etc., digital portfolio.

I. Hybrid graphics (1st to 5th class) 
Presentation of the most popular vector and raster graphics techniques to be applied on the individually designed facades. Design of a corner of a building with two adjacent facades - tectonics, materials, colors, openings, design features, etc. Presentation of the accepted facade variations in the form of a 2D or 3D renderings.

II. Space & Light (6th to 10th class)

Painting with light. The "contours" of the space are revealed similarly to linear perspective, however in a paradox manner, we achieve this image with the tool of aerial perspective. Volumetric lighting effects help us create transcendent quasi-spaces.

  • Tonal transition of shadows on the bounding surfaces. Experiments with scattered light, aerial perspective.
  • Experiments with the effects of directed light through perforations. The role of backlighting as the most frequently applied lighting effect in architecture, historic examples.
  • Experiments with transcendent and genuine effects, in-between transitions, shared characteristics. Recreation of complex lighting effects of transparent and translucent structures and materials in contemporary architecture, reflection as a design tool. The proper use of linear and area lighting contrasts.
  • Lighting study, sun-path animation, using natural and artificial light sources.
  • Creation of an abstract composition based one or more captured frames
