Content


This unit is designed to prepare you for Masterclass and sets the foundation for your thoughtful selection of a complex architectural project. Through the introduction of design research methodologies, you will be required to consider global challenges that affect design within the built environment, and identify a specific body of knowledge relevant to your design position through logic and reasoning.

You will be required to demonstrate your command through research and rigor, providing analysis and exemplars to support the development of your project scope, relevance, and purpose. The project speculation will be tested through sketch design iterations. This will lead to a rich and comprehensive briefing document that establishes relevant and meaningful information that will identify an overarching thematic alignment of the course, as well as form the basis of your exploration for Masterclass Studio project.
