The unit integrates knowledge and skills developed in other units through the resolution of the design of a complex architectural project within the context of international contemporary practice. The unit builds upon the concept of urban ecologies and sustainable urban development as students synthesise social, cultural, environmental, information and economic objectives within a design management process. The unit draws on the theory and practice in the field of design management from the perspective of the various disciplines. Design collaboration methodologies and processes will be introduced to create an authentic learning experience of the key activities of strategic and functional brief development to achieve client requirements. Unique project environments will be presented through various case studies allowing the individual disciplines to explore key contemporary themes of the mega project, collaborative practice, internationalisation and reflexivity from their perspective.
Through a case study approach, the student will develop skills in knowledge and process integration applied to project evaluation and strategic decision making within the context of a collaborative multidisciplinary environment. The process of resolution is undertaken via workshops with trigger guest lecturers from experts in knowledge areas such as: international collaborative practice. Students shall work in online multidisciplinary built environment teams simulating current international distributed teams towards developing high level reflective practice skills in relation to design and construction collaboration to inform and effect action. The focus is on developing design management process abilities through the development and refinement of a strategic and/or functional project brief informed by debate, discourse and critical thinking. The process enables a development of research for project skills including information searching, critique and synthesis.
