Choose a single Italian building from the period 1450-1650. Analyze the relationship of its plan, elevation, section and decoration and its interaction with the site, and discuss the relationship of design, function, and decoration. Discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the available literature and explain what you have found to be most compelling in researching the building.
architectural drawing or architect’s drawing is a technical drawing of a building (or building project) that falls within the definition of architecture. Architectural drawings are used by architects and others for a number of purposes: to develop a design idea into a coherent proposal, to communicate ideas and concepts, to convince clients of the merits of a design, to assist a building contractor to construct it based on design intent, as a record of the design and planned development, or to make a record of a building that already exists.
Architectural drawings are made according to a set of conventions, which include particular views (floor plan, section etc.), sheet sizes, units of measurement and scales, annotation and cross referencing.
