In Architectural Design you will learn how to create models using programs such as Sketchup and Revit. Also combining the use of design and architectural elements to make models of houses and buildings on computer programs as well as paper. https://i0.wp.com/www.mls.k12.nd.us/hsanderson/files/2015/04/14617-d-architectural-design.jpg

Google Sketchup:

Sketchup is good for basic designs of whatever you are creating. Basic Lines and shapes are used to construct virtual 3-d Models. I had as problem with sketchup because the level of detail within the model is poor.

Revit is used to create models in great detail, models that are used by real architects and contractors to build buildings all over the world. The only difficulty with Revit is the wide variety of tools and options. It takes a while to learn and when you do it is a very beneficial program.

To find more families and things to enter into your model go to: Downloads-to the bottom and you will see Revit files but only on computer 26/25.

Need any help just visit the website above.

Paper and Pencil:

Always use and architectural ruler, a triangle, and a protractor. (make sure if using a scale to stick with that same scale and make a note of it.)https://i1.wp.com/s3.amazonaws.com/cooltools_legacy/alvin-scale-sm.jpg
