This course will explore the concept of place through drawing. It will introduce you to the notion of drawing and design as tools for recording, reflecting and communicating ideas around architecture and the built environment. The course is therefore ideal for anyone currently studying architecture, or thinking about studying it in the future, or anyone who's simply interested in drawing and the urban landscape who wants to learn more.

This will be a practical course based on location and in the design studio.

On this course you will undertake projects that:
- use different materials 'in-situ' to record architecture
- involve site observations to help you engage with a location
- research how people interact with the environment
- improve your skills in hand drawing use the computer to generate images that identify spatial activity, infrastructure and the built form.

The course will include architectural history and theory as well as group project work and presentations to demonstrate your artistic understanding of drawing, pattern and architecture. This course is also part of the NTU Global Summer School which attracts undergraduate students from colleges around the world.
