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 outcomesAfter 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.

No Required Texts/Readings.
Selected books may be placed on Special Reserve in the Library for your reference and listed on the unit Canvas page.
Students should note that the scheduled lectures followed by in-class quizzes, which will address an understanding of the basic engineering principles necessary for written reports and final online exam. Attendance at these sessions is therefore essential to the successful completion of the unit.
Required IT skills
Students are required to have a basic understanding of common operating systems (mac, windows) and the microsoft office suite (or similar).
Costs in the order of $100 may be required for the purchase of model-making (prototyping) materials.
