Content

In SRD765 students will investigate architectural design as a discipline of philosophic intention essentially coupled with compositional, structural, and material development. They will undertake a structured project, which will allow them to study architectural design development, analyse design potentials with reference to the works of selected architects, and investigate compositional and material methods and design intentions. Students will be required to develop design to a level of resolution such that significant parts of the scheme are understood for their philosophic and material qualities. This will involve progressive investigation and production with parts of the scheme studied and developed at a scale of 1:20.

Assessment

Mid-trimester project presentation 40%, final folio and demonstration 60%
