SRV799 integrates knowledge and skills developed during the course of study through the adaptation of the design of a complex architectural project within the context of international practice. Learning and assessment activities in the unit will build on the concept of urban ecologies and sustainable urban development as students synthesise social, cultural, environmental information and economic objectives within a design management process. Students will draw on the theory and practice in the field of design management from the perspective of the architecture and construction disciplines. Students will use design collaboration methodologies and processes to create strategic and functional briefs that achieve client requirements informed by debate, discourse and critical thinking. Learning through case study approach will aid students to develop skills and knowledge, and the ability to integrate processes for application in project evaluation and strategic decision-making within the context of a multidisciplinary environment.
