Course outline

“Protecting our architectural heritage starts with understanding where it comes from”

We all admire the beautiful historical buildings that grace our cities and towns, but how much do we really know about how they were designed? This introductory course attempts to answer this question by exploring the roots of our architectural heritage through short lectures and practical drawing demonstrations.

The course will explore the history and knowledge that architects in the past would have used in their everyday work, and show you how to create simple architectural compositions through easy drawing examples.

This course aims to connect learners with the architectural language that characterises the design of our most cherished buildings and places. It is hoped that with a basic understanding of this knowledge we can better appreciate our architectural heritage which will in turn help to protect it for future generations.

If you ever wanted to know more about how these buildings were designed, this is the course for you. Suitable for beginners and professionals alike
