Visual Studies

Graphic Presentation considered the graphic aspect of communicating architectural ideas. The classes were practical and comprised of short projects organized to introduce basic concepts of two-dimensional design, typography, composition, production and communication.

Part one focused on two-dimensional composition and typography. We examined the details of letterforms, fonts and type design as well as typographic hierarchy. We then looked at the composition of graphic space using both typography and images. The final result was a poster.

Part two concentrated on sequential graphic treatments typical of book pages, web design and presentations. Using the tools developed in the first section, we combined graphic tools with narrative content. The final form was a brief presentation.
