The focus of this studio unit is on design as a process of exploration, integration and synthesis. Design studies explore concepts of purpose and place, the public-private interface, socio-cultural context and of form and structure. Responses to brief requirements, site, structure and skin, shelter and materiality are investigated and integrated into design learning. Creative and analytical skills are developed through studies in abstraction, interpretation and synthesis. Project based learning is undertaken in a studio environment. The brief requirements include criteria related to issues of sustainability, social responsibility and the application of research in design.
