1 x 2 hour class per week, 1 x 4 hour studio per week
For this capstone design unit students will select from a range of projects offered by specific staff members. All will have similar scale, ambition and design complexity, and 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 course: meaning and the human dimension of Architecture, Architectural resolution and tectonics, environmental relevance and the responsibilities of the built environment, the public role of Architecture, and hybridization and the use of technology as a tool to explore design alternatives.
Students will have the opportunity to select their main field of interest in Architecture Design (Thought, Matter, Earth, Public, Hybrid). Through the integration within their project of the remaining design inputs in their proposal, students will demonstrate the application of their individual approach to architectural design.
