Possible changes to your unit's learning activities and assessment items

For the remainder of 2020, resulting from Australian Government's directives requiring physical distancing and restrictions on movement because of the COVID-19 pandemic, any exams that are required for assessment in a unit will be online exams. Online exams may also use online proctoring to help assure the academic integrity of those exams. Please contact your unit convener with any questions.

While the University has made efforts to ensure that Unit Outlines reflect a unit’s learning activities and assessment items, any changes to Australian Government directives because of the COVID-19 pandemic may require changes to these during the semester to ensure the safety and well being of students and staff. These changes will not be updated in the published unit outline, but will be communicated to you via your unit’s UCLearn(Canvas) teaching site. Any changes made will continue to meet the unit’s learning outcomes, as described in the Unit Outline.

In this unit students will develop a core understanding of construction and 'micro-tectonic' logics that affect the materialisation of interior environments.

Throughout the unit, students will design and compose a set of construction systems, speculating on the anatomy of unbuilt case studies with historical and disciplinary relevance. The unbuilt condition is utilised as a mechanism to position each student in a critical and highly explorative context.

Learning Outcomes

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

1. Differentiate the specific role of construction technologies within complex systems;

2. Narrate constructed entities as a hierarchical relation between tectonic systems and components;

3. Interpret the role of digital and analogue tools for spatial representation as construction design mechanisms;

4. Transform and adapt to a specific design to existing construction technologies; and

5. Apply the construction specific conventions of representation.
