Rationale
Basic Design has its importance in introducing the student to free-hand drawing of object/ building, with the help of site visits, they are able to express their ideas through free-hand sketches. Knowledge of colour schemes & compositions helps the student to instill life into their drawings/sketches. Basic Design as a whole provides a strong platform to enable the student to develop creative ideas for their architectural design subject. All architectural designs are presented with the help of drawings and model. While drawings like plans, sections & elevations help one to understand the design two-dimensionally, models provide a three dimensional understanding. Hence knowledge and skill of making models with the help of different materials in different scales is very important for architectural presentation. This type of presentation is essential to understand and comprehend the planning & designing of a building.
