SCHOOL OF ARCHITECTURE.
OBJECT OF THE SCHOOL.
The School seeks to prepare students for the profession of Architecture. For this" a thorough knowledge of scientific principles applied to building, ability and correct taste in design, and some technical knowledge of the various building trades, with skill in the use of tools are necessary, and are prominent features of the course of instruction.
The technical studies are chiefly given by lectures, illustrated by sketches, models or engravings, and a practical application is made by the student. Drawing is practiced throughout the course, and, as far as possible, original work is executed. Drawing from casts and modeling in clay, give facility in sketching details and correct knowledge of form. In shop practice, designs are made by the student, and worked out in wood, to reduced scale, of roofs, stairs, &c. The course in Mathematics, Mechanics, Physics, &c, is nearly identical with that in the other schools of Engineering.
Drawing from Casts—Outline sketches and finished drawings in pencil and crayon. Modeling in Clay—From casts and original designs; weekly exercises in designing architectural ornaments. Wood Construction and Drawing—Construction and finish of wooden buildings, roofs, ceilings, domes, towers, stairs, &c. Iron, Brick, and Stone Construction, and Drawing—Buildings of
