Methodology/Classroom Procedures Each week a specific subject matter will be lectured during the first 2 hours of the class meeting.

Studio Drawing Exercises There will be weekly, drawing exercises for the course Finishing to be completed by each student every week, in the second part of the class, following the lecture part which normally lasts two hours from the beginning of the class meeting. Each of the design exercises (DE) is normally related to the subject that is covered in the lecture part of the class.
It is required that all of the design exercises of a student relate to the same building, which will be called here and then MASTER BUILDING. For this reason the student is required to select or develop a MASTER BUILDING of his own during the first two weeks of the semester.
The requirements that the MASTER BUILDING should fulfill are outlined below: Any design thats either previously done by the student as a course requirement, or borrowed from any source of book, magazine or builder is acceptable as long as it fulfills these requirements
