Department: Interior Architecture
This course is meant to help foundation and advanced students develop drawing abilities as they relate to interior architectural spaces. The class follows the decades old practice of teaching architects and designers how to sketch as a learning and study tool as well as a means to understand and read the architectural environment. In-studio instruction and demonstrations plus on-site exercises in some of the most relevant historical and contemporary buildings in Florence will provide students with the skills to understand the physical environment around them. Students will be helped to understand the value of sketching as one of the most remarkable experiences for the designer in order to establish a useful and creative conversation regarding the project at hand.
Colomba Pecchioli, born in Florence in 1976, after receiving her classic Diploma studied architecture in the University of Florence, where she graduated with honors in 2003, with a thesis on Trieste’s waterfront redevelopment.
