During the first course, students are introduced to design and architectural projects by means of exercises in which they have to graphically record a situation, propose a transformation and carry it out. The structure of the course requires the students to gradually come into contact with real conditions on a 1:1 scale.

Once small introductory exercises are completed, the process starts with the study of an area in the general working area, analyzing natural and physical conditions and characteristics. Later, students have to pick the element they work to work with, to make a design and build. 

During 20112/13, a shelter on a tree had to be designed and build. During 2013/14, they were commission to make and build a shelter in the bumpy brown filed next to the architecture school.

The constructions have to be then, transferred to paper on a smaller scale , using architectural representation techniques while starting to create a personal graphic language, reflecting their perspective and working interest.
