ARCHITECTURAL DIGITAL DRAWING
Learning outcomes of the course unit
The aim of the course is to help students develop the ability to communicate the architecture, through the use of existing tools of the digital representation - of BIM, in particular - and the drafting of drawings "expressive" in the visual communication of a 'project idea, and "exhaustive" to return information to dimensions and shape and techniques necessary for the realization of the architecture.
The educational program will be conducted through the revision (assisted) of an architectural model, delivered to students at the beginning of the course, and the drafting of a project to scale enforceable. At the end of the course, the student should know the main techniques of architectural modeling through the use of BIM software to produce graphic tables that illustrate the architecture assigned according to all aspects, from the first processed that expose the dimensional technical drawings up to that clarify any aspect related to the construction technology and materials used.
It’s useful to have in-depth knowledge of two-dimensional drawing assisted (Autocad) and knowledge base of three-dimensional modeling with generic software.
Course contents summary
The course of Digital Modeling of Architecture (4 CFU) introduces the utility of some parametric graphic software dedicated to architecture (BIM), such as AllPlan and Revit, and explains the codes and graphic conventions to be used with these tools in the representation of the executive design.
Indications are also given about how to prepare models perfectly interchangeable with other applications.
The course will take place through theoretical and practical lessons:
- creation of a project
- setting of standard levels
- creation of pillars, walls, floors, stairs, roofs, with materials
- not parametric solid modelling
- processing of two-dimensional drawings (plants, sections and views)
- render and save images
The module design digital architecture (8 credits) is an integral part of the Laboratory of executive representation. The module aims to address the issue of the representation of the project, with specific reference to the notation (symbols) taken in the magnitude scales normally used in the transition from the architectural design of maximum working drawing construction. This will be addressed through prior learning of existing tools of the digital representation, and in particular of BIM.
The module aims to explore the potential of some software parametric plots dedicated to architecture, such as Allplan, ArchiCAD and Revit, as well as some lessons about the conventions, codes and rules relating to the representation.

The Workshop will take place inside the computer labs. Here students have access to computers and graphics software suitable for direct learning of the techniques necessary for the representation of digital graphics.
During the lectures will discuss the general issues related to the representation of architecture
Assessment methods and criteria
Final assessment of learning of the topics covered in the Laboratory consists in the discussion and evaluation of the drawings produced by the student.
The evaluation of the boards will be expressed in relation to the completeness, clarity and originality of the content.
