    In this Studio the morphological and typological structures of residential and/or public buildings are investigated through analytical drawings and models. Strategies of formal and spatial modifications are studied through site-specific projects. Students will develop skills in the translation of design development drawings into working drawings in reference to their original design concepts; chosen construction system, and materiality. Lectures and workshops will support studio learning, and students will be introduced to elements of practice and project management in the discipline of architecture. Topics addressed include the origin of the profession; project brief development in relation to client, public and/or user needs; roles and responsibilities of the architect; processes of working in a team of built environment specialists; processes of research into specific building types; overview of codes, regulations and standards; and conventional project management tools.
