VLU’s Faculty of Architecture organized the Seminar in Geometry

(VLU, 14/01/2021) - On the afternoon of 13 January 2021, the Faculty of Architecture had organized a seminar to exchange academic materials and sketches themed on “Geometry” at VLU - Campus 1 seeing the presence of faculties, staff, and the majority of the students of course 26. 

Sketching is a closely related subject to Geometry, illustrating objects and spaces in advanced projections. As a part of the Architecture program’s curriculum, sketching is the critical skill to enhance dimensional and block brainstorming ability, which helps students to exploit their creativity in their projects.

In the seminar, there was Dr. Do Phu Hung – Dean of the Faculty of Architecture, Lecturer Nguyen Bao Tuan – Head of the Technical division in Architecture, and many staff and faculties from the same faculty. Discussing the importance of Sketching to students and architects, Dr. Do Phu Hung said: “Back then, Sketching was a difficult course even with the architecture students because it demanded a high level of imagination. Yet with the “learning through experience” training method, architecture students could study in a hybrid model between theoretical and simulating study. Therefore, the students could create their works, which make their study more practical and simpler.”

Lecturer Vu Tien Dat of the Faculty of Architecture said that the initial time studying Sketching will be a “forgetful experience” to architecture students. Hence, the faculties had constantly looked for innovations, selected and created the most effective teaching methods, and made the course more interesting and attractive to students when they could create their work and learn from practice. Apart from the basic blocks, the students should mainly work with the traditional multi-dimension, curving surfaces such as Paraboloid, Hyperbolic, Regular Polyhedron… The students then have to learn to arrange in various ways to create more illustrating curving surfaces highly applicable to architecture such as domes, thin-shell structures, towers…
