This unit stands as the critical summation of the knowledge and capabilities developed in design for the Master of Architecture. Students are required to produce an individual architectural design project using an advanced design methodology underpinned by an essential theoretical intention. Each student shall formulate a project brief, and move to a position where a substantial body of work can be developed using a range of complex architectural factors and sophisticated principles of design. This will require students to integrate their body of knowledge and methods, and demonstrate the use of contextual, functional, technical and theoretical factors to explore, test and clarify their architectural design project.

Each student will be appointed a supervisor with whom they will work with throughout the trimester, and with whom they will meet each week to receive individual instruction and discussion regarding their individual project developments.  The Progress Evaluation, Final Project Submission, and Formal Presentation constitutes the total grade for this unit.
