SRD763 Architectural Design Master Studio A introduces students to design studio practices at master level through three streams that students can select From: 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 human and social agenda of architecture and
  2. holistically integrate sustainability approaches, concepts and principles considering project specific requirements.

The projects will involve the development of an architectural intervention with a degree of programmatic complexity focussed on the social and residential challenges faced by contemporary urban context. The physical, historic, cultural and environmental contexts into which these architectural proposals are inserted will play a major role in the analysis and propositional phases of the design process. Projects are intended to express a critical position towards the sometimes conflictive and controversial situations that characterize urban coexistence and create a design that reflects environmental responsibility. Theoretical, architectural, and urban spaces will be explored, defined and described through a wide range of architectural tools and documents. The expectation of the unit is that each of the documents elaborated to communicate the projective reality that students propose, achieve a level of professionalism and persuasiveness in accordance with the masters level of the architectural course.


Analysis and conceptual design proposal 20%, design project presentation 50%, environmental responsibilities portfolio 30%
