SRD742 Architectural Design Master Studio B introduces students to design studio practices at master level through three streams, of which students can select one for the duration of the unit: theory, urban or technology. All three streams and the design project briefs that each of them will undertake in the unit will:

  1. focus on the public and political agenda of architecture and
  2. holistically integrate sustainability approaches, concepts and principles considering project specific requirements.

Through a framework of quantitative and qualitative measures, the projects will be focused on the design of a building, a group of buildings, or any other type of complex architectural intervention in real and hypothetical scenarios that explore the programmatic richness and diversity of architecture and the urban context. The environmental agenda integrated in this studio will focus on the performance of materialisation of architecture, from the selection of building material to tectonics and analysis of specialised building envelopes. The context into which the conceptual, architectural or urban proposal is integrated will play a major role in both the analysis and synthesis phases of the design process. Conceptual, architectural, and urban spaces will be explored, defined and described through a wide range of architectural tools and documents.


Analysis and project concept exploration 20%, project presentation 50%, environmental performance analysis portfolio 30%
