Content

Architectural design evolves through the exploration and reappraisal of a range of ideas and propositions that lead progressively to the eventual resolution of a coherent design proposal. SRD163 introduces students to Architectural Design by exploring the complex process of thinking, where experience, meaning and philosophy are positioned as essential to the aesthetic, spatial and physical resolution of design. Students must undertake study in areas of architectural enquiry including the language of Architecture (form and order, hierarchy, scale composition and proportion); the human body and anthropometrics; and drawing upon historical precedents evident in contemporary Architecture.

Assessment

Drawings 30%, design project 50%, design review 20%
