Syllabus

Architecture Studio 4 elaborates on architectural design as a process of investigation, critical observation, and experimentation. The studio emphasizes design as a synthetic process encompassing a range of complex issues. It continues to investigate the development of architectural form through the further consolidation of three-dimensional, digital, and material testing of ideas through digital fabrication. The unit consolidates approaches to three-dimensional digital and material testing of architectural forms and ideas. Environmental determinants and technological issues are addressed in reference to the brief requirements and cultural dimensions of civic architecture.

Learning Outcomes

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

1. Apply and evaluate a range of approaches to architectural design;

2. Critically analyse and successfully respond to the complex range of issues impacting architectural design projects;

3. Develop a coherent critique of how observation, analysis, experiment and critique apply to the architectural design process; and
