Oneyear Product Design.

The Basic Course is taught following a single theme approach with cycles of lessons on theory integrated with workshop exercises and subjects. In this way students acquire the solid cultural, methodological and operative foundations necessary for following a Master’s course in Industrial Design e Interior Design;

Technical / Geometrical Drawing

Geometric design is the language through which an idea, a design is objectified in its real dimensions. The aim of the course is to make understood the “grammar” of this partucular way of communication. A scientific reference point is projective geometry which allows the graphical description of objects even of considerable complexity in a clear, unequivocal and universal way. The course takes place with theoretical lessons alongside practical tests with appropriate exercises, dealing with the following topics:
- Project design in its correlation with perception and geometry, its historical evolution, the specific tools.
- International unification and standardisation in executive design with reference to signs, scales, support formats, conventional symbology, dimensioning.
- Study of the representation of flat figures: from the point to the line, from the angle to the polygon, from curvilinear figures to notable curves and curves in space.
- Study of the representation of elementary solids (such as prisms, pyramids, regular polyhedrons, sphere and derivatives), sections and interpenetrations between them and their development on the level.
- Study of the representation of three-dimensional figures through the systems of parallel and central projection. In specific, for the former, analysis of the orthogonal and the axonometric projections; for the latter, both the central and casual perspectives. Orthogonal projections are at the basis of technical design and the development of any design and so will be widely dealth with. The axonometry, permitting the three-dimensional visualization, will be applied in some plates of interior and product design. Perspective will be applied to perpendicular plans as well as to inclineted plants to the point of view; moreover we will inquire some peculiarity such as the perspectical return and anamorphosis.
The programme requires an elevated daily commitment in terms of individual work. Weekly assignments to exercise graphic abilities will be given by the teacher.
