    This studio unit examines design as a process of articulation and refinement informed by theory, strategy and judgement.
    Design studios address social spaces and associated structures that provide education, leisure, convenience, rest, recuperation, indulgence and competition. Symbolism and meaning in design precedent, contextual and cultural parameters where environmental and social sustainability are investigated.
    Students respond to real clients, analyse complex program requirements, develop design briefs and formulate detailed schematic responses. Regulation and other statutory influences on design are introduced.
    Students undertake projects in a studio environment.
