Content

This is the capstone design unit of the Architecture undergraduate courses. Students will select from a range of projects offered by specific staff members. All proposed projects will have similar scale, ambition and design complexity. Students will be required to demonstrate, through their design production, the integration and application of all the skills, capacities and knowledge learnt in previous design units, as well as the integration of knowledge gained in all other units of the course. Projects will emphasise the integration of the five major topics that have characterised the design studios in the Architecture courses: Architecture as a meaningful and relevant discipline strongly linked to the overall cultural and philosophical panorama; architectural compromise with materiality; environmental responsibility of the work of the architect in the built environment; the fundamental public role of Architecture; and physical and conceptual hybrid condition of the current urban environment.

Students will have the opportunity to select their main field of interest in Architecture Design (Thought, Matter, Earth, Public, Hybrid).  Students will also integrate components from the remaining design inputs in their proposal, demonstrating the application of their individual approach to architectural design.

Assessment

Design: project analysis and concept development (includes oral presentation) 20%, Design: project final presentation 50%, reflective portfolio 30%
