This is an introduction to Architectural Design course!
Design your own house plans just like an architect! Using the same software as architects and designers, students will learn how to design 3D and 2D drawings. CAD is a full-year introductory architectural course with a small unit that explores engineering problem solving. Using a curriculum developed by the Chicago Architecture Foundation, students will build their portfolios with outside-the-box designs and a complete set of blueprints for a house they design from scratch. Students will use AutoCAD and Revit. This course fulfills the graduation requirement for Fine/Practical Arts. This course is eligible for college Dual Credit.
