Syllabus

In Architecture Studio 1, cumulative exercises explore the architectonics of form, space and material. Building on the basic architectural knowledge and skills attained in previous units, this studio introduces students to a further level of complexity in the processes of investigation, critical observation, and experimentation. Creative and analytical skills are developed through studies in abstraction, interpretation and synthesis. A range of complex issues including material, structure, brief, site, history and theory are investigated in relationship to the creation of architectural form.

Learning Outcomes

After successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

1. Analyse a range of architectural issues drawn from architectural briefs in specific settings;

2. Investigate through drawings and models form composition devices and strategies that explore form, space, material and use;

3. Interpret architectural concepts in response to site and orientation; and

4. Analyse and implement appropriate strategies and tools to support verbal, graphic and 3-dimensional communication and presentation.
