Systemic Design 1

The class provides the basic knowledge of the techniques and tools of representation for the design project. Introduces and integrates the scientific approach to the representation with graphic-visual techniques and digital manual activities necessary for the designer, and with those specific to the construction of real and virtual models of the artifact, existing or planned.

Provides the cultural and technical tools to effectively manage the relationship between two- and three-dimensional, real and virtual communication. It is divided into Theory of models, Digital graphics for communication, Digital design for two-dimensional technical representation.
