Content

In SRD765 students will investigate architectural design as a discipline of philosophic intention essentially coupled with compositional, structural, and material development.  This will require students to undertake a process of architectural design development, where designs will be analysed and the design intentions developed through investigations into compositional and material methods alongside reference to the works of selected architects.  Students will be required to develop their design to a considerable 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 up to a scale of 1:20.
