Course Description:
Drawing Systems II: Drawing Systems II builds on the concepts introduced in Drawing Systems I, with emphasis on architectural detailing, including millwork, furniture and cabinetry. Computer aided drafting using AutoCAD will be the primary method of graphic communication in this course. Prerequisites: AR 299A and AR 299B, Co-Requisiste: AR396B. 1:5:3

Educational Philosophy:
The facilitator's educational philosophy is one based upon a combination of lectures, reading, and tests in conjunction with hands-on activities and projects.

Learning Outcomes:
  Core Learning Outcomes

  1. Organize drawings according to the Construction Specifiers Institute format of organizing the materials and methods used in building construction.
  2. Prepare constructions documents similar to those used by professional designers to have their work approved by regulatory bodies, priced and built.
  3. Competently use both the computer and hand tools as drafting instruments and as design tools.
  4. Not applied to this project
  5. Produce detailed drawings to fully describe the details of an interior space including millwork, trim, cabinetry, custom furniture and architectural elements.


Core Assessment:

Core Assessment Project Description: 



The Core Assessment Project will consist of the design and documentation of a reception desk & renovation of a “lobby space” done in collaboration with 396b Interior Design Studio 3: Furniture Design.  This project will build upon the concepts introduced during the semester, with emphasis on architectural detailing, including millwork and cabinetry.  Computer aided drafting using AutoCAD will be the primary method of graphic communication with this project resulting in the production of a fully detailed drawing set that could be submitted for bid. 



Core Assessment Project Objectives:



On completion of this project, students will demonstrate the means and methods of architectural detailing in order to execute the “macro” design concept at the “micro” level. 



 In addition, the students will be able to:



 



  • Organize their drawings according to industry standards for formatting and organizing the information in a construction document drawing set.


  • The drawing set should be able to be priced and built.


  • Produce detailed drawings to fully describe the details of the design in millwork, trim, custom and architectural elements.

Project Deliverables: 



Complete set of construction drawings of lobby, incorporating design details and reception desk drawings.  Turn in two bound copies.

Link to Class Rubric

Class Assessment:

Tests from lectures and readings (Outcome 1 - 5)
 
Completeness of computer aided drafting assignments (Outcome 1 - 5)

Grading:

Tests will be graded on a point per question basis (30% of total grade)
 
Class participation will be graded upon ability to answer questions proposed by the facilitator (10% of total grade)
 
Drafting projects will be assessed based upon a point system for meeting each individual objective requested in the assignment by the facilitator.  Point values will be given for each objective at time of each assignment / project (60% of total grade)
 
Grading points will be as follows;
A -- 90 or above
B -- 80 - 89
C -- 70 - 70
D -- 60 - 69
F -- 59 or below

Late Submission of Course Materials:
Late work will not be accepted without a legitimate excuse attached.  Late work must be turned in (with excuse attached) by the beginning of the next schedule class or the assignment grade will be lowered 5%.  An additional 5% subtracted for each class period that the work is late.

Classroom Rules of Conduct:

Class format will include lecture/demonstration and discussion of work as well as time to practice skills and techniques.  Students are expected to come to class with tools and supplies, prepared to work in class.  The computer lab will be available for students' use when the rooms are not scheduled for other classes.  Additional time outside of class hours to complete projects / assignments is expected.
 
A professional and respectful attitude toward the instructor and fellow students is expected.  Tardiness, leaving before class is dismissed, and other class disruptions (i.e. phone calls, etc.) will be noted and reflected in the final grade.

Academic Honesty:
Academic integrity is the foundation of the academic community. Because each student has the primary responsibility for being academically honest, students are advised to read and understand all sections of this policy relating to standards of conduct and academic life.   Park University 2007-2008 Undergraduate Catalog Page 85-86

Plagiarism:
Plagiarism involves the use of quotations without quotation marks, the use of quotations without indication of the source, the use of another's idea without acknowledging the source, the submission of a paper, laboratory report, project, or class assignment (any portion of such) prepared by another person, or incorrect paraphrasing. Park University 2007-2008 Undergraduate Catalog Page 85

Attendance Policy:
Instructors are required to maintain attendance records and to report absences via the online attendance reporting system.

  1. The instructor may excuse absences for valid reasons, but missed work must be made up within the semester/term of enrollment.
  2. Work missed through unexcused absences must also be made up within the semester/term of enrollment.
  3. Work missed through unexcused absences must also be made up within the semester/term of enrollment, but unexcused absences may carry further penalties.
  4. In the event of two consecutive weeks of unexcused absences in a semester/term of enrollment, the student will be administratively withdrawn, resulting in a grade of "F".
  5. A "Contract for Incomplete" will not be issued to a student who has unexcused or excessive absences recorded for a course.
  6. Students receiving Military Tuition Assistance or Veterans Administration educational benefits must not exceed three unexcused absences in the semester/term of enrollment. Excessive absences will be reported to the appropriate agency and may result in a monetary penalty to the student.
  7. Report of a "F" grade (attendance or academic) resulting from excessive absence for those students who are receiving financial assistance from agencies not mentioned in item 5 above will be reported to the appropriate agency.

Park University 2007-2008 Undergraduate Catalog Page 87-88
Class attendance is required.  An attendance sheet will be passed around at the beginning of each class while annoucements are being made.  It is the student's responsibility to sign the attendance sheet at this time.  Students who do not sign the attendance sheet, but arrive after it is distributed, will be considered late.  Three late arrivals will equal one absence.
In case of illness or emergency, the instructor must be notified prior to class by sending an e-mail message.  Each student will be allowed three absences, which, if proper notification is sent, will be recorded as "excused."  Thus each of the following will result in a 5% deduction from the final grade:
1. Three "tardies" equalling one unexcused absence.
2. Any absence that is not excused by a written (e-mail) notification.
3. The fourth and each subsequent absence, regardless of excuse.

Disability Guidelines:
Park University is committed to meeting the needs of all students that meet the criteria for special assistance. These guidelines are designed to supply directions to students concerning the information necessary to accomplish this goal. It is Park University's policy to comply fully with federal and state law, including Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, regarding students with disabilities. In the case of any inconsistency between these guidelines and federal and/or state law, the provisions of the law will apply. Additional information concerning Park University's policies and procedures related to disability can be found on the Park University web page: http://www.park.edu/disability .

A contractor would have difficulty building the space or the desk without additional drawings. A student who shows no evidence of applying skills of drafting and detailing does not produce a set of construction drawings OR the final drawing set is missing so much information, the space and/or desk could not be built.
