The major focus of this unit is the relationship between sustainable design and tectonics through a series of interrelated design projects. Major areas of exploration include: the use of diagram to communicate ideas, site analysis, ecologically sustainable building and designing collaboratively as part of a team.  Design is explored across a broad range of scales, and includes representational and simulated modelling.  Consideration is given to cultural, social, material and environmental requirements and the importance of historical precedent.  The unit reinforces understandings of passive heating, cooling and daylighting as well as consideration of structural, constructional and envelope systems.


Project work consisting of three projects (15%, 40%, 35%), reflective journal related to the student’s folio (10%). The second and third projects are completed as part of a team but students are assessed individually using the School’s Self and Peer Assessment (SAPA).
