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.
