Freehand drawing as an architecture “esperanto” for students of Aarchitecture and Building Engineering
Languages of publication
The paper describes the process and effects of two open-air drawing sessions organised by Department of Civil Engineering and Architecture, Faculty of Civil Engineering, Opole University of Technology. The open-air drawing sessions took place in 2013 in Opole and Gliwice, and in 2014 in Pavia. The aim of the sessions was to improve the ability of synthetical and analitical freehand drawing, a comprehensive communication tool, which also simplifies the work with computer. Furthermore, young architecture students had the possibility to broaden their knowledge about buildings and complexes in a wide range of revaluation and revitalization. Students and teachers from architecture and engineering studies from Poland, Italy, Denmark, Spain and Finland took part in those open-air drawing sessions. In this European Union project called “Let’s Exchange HERitage of our CULture – Drawing as a Communication Tool of Students of Architecture/ Engineers from European UniversitieS – HERCULES” freehand drawing was means of cognition and the main goal was to broaden the knowledge of cultural heritage.
