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.

This unit explores typologies and systems of spatial construction as they relate to the sequential and temporal formation of interior space.

Throughout the unit, the construction of interior space is analysed through seven hierarchically analogous layers that both contain and form interior space:

1. Structure
2. Envelope
3. Partitions
4. Linings
5. Systems (atmospheric, water supply, appliances)
6. Furniture
7. Ornament

The unit aims to provide students with the ability to differentiate construction systems and layers in the formation of interior space, and the intellectual and technical skills to represent and critique construction technologies relevant to the discipline.

Learning Outcomes

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

1. Identify and classify independent technologies of spatial construction;

2. Analyse and apply multi-scalar logic linked to conceptualization and representation of spatial construction;

3. Contextualize innovation in construction within political and historical contexts;

4. Explain the construction of studied entities through the accurate production of graphic documents, physical and digital models; and

5. Produce precise, accurate and highly communicative construction documents.
