Methodologically, this unit comprises design studios, and interactive lectures and design tutorials. The interactive lectures and tutorials unpack contemporary and historical case studies and theoretical frameworks concerning domestic typologies.
Learning outcomesAfter successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Develop formal and informal experimentation methods within a design context;
2. Analyse approaches to event, programme and spatial organisation;
3. Develop and review individual design intuition and spatial creativity;
4. Develop and apply a rigorous iterative method-based design process;
5. Engage in the realisation and presentation of design concepts across four dimensions; and
6. Apply theoretical frameworks to build a reflective approach to the development of design ideas.

Participation in lectures and tutorials is expected as class discussion will be integral to success in this unit.
Required IT skills
As required for a successful visual presentation (i.e. InDesign, Illustator, Photoshop).
There are no required textbooks for this unit, however cost for diagraming/modeling materials should be considered.
Work placement, internships or practicums
Announcements made during tutorials/practicals, or sent to your University of Canberra student email address, will be deemed to have been made to the whole group. Students are responsible for regularly checking their UC student email and the Canvas page each week.
Consultation with Staff
Contact with staff should generally be within the allocated class times. Consultation outside of these hours shall be made by prior appointment, and in addition to, not in lieu of, the scheduled class time. Students who fail to attend classes, and who do not have a medical or Counsellor's certificate or other genuine reason for missing classes, should not expect additional tutorial or consultation time.
Please note: staff are not able to return calls to long distance or mobile telephone numbers after normal hours or on weekends or holidays. Emails are normally not checked or answered at nights, on weekends or on public holidays.
Teaching staff (and particularly part-time staff) may not be able to attend to phone calls or reply to emails immediately. Please ensure any urgent matters are brought to their attention within the allocated class time, or request assistance in notifying the Convener through the Administrative Assistant for the Course.
Late Collection of Assignments
Designers, and design students, are expected to take responsibility for their work. In the context of the design studios, this is considered to include both submitting the work on time, and collecting it following assessment.
Collection times will be advised for submissions where appropriate. Where a project/assignment is not collected by that time, the project may be discarded without further notice.
This penalty will not apply when prior arrangements have been made with the Unit Convener, or when the work is being retained, such as for accreditation.
Project materials are to be cleared away at the end of each studio session. Unless work is identified for retention by staff, work not collected at this time will be disposed of.
In addition, studios are to be cleared of work and generally cleaned up at the end of each semester. Projects not removed by the advertised date may be discarded without further notice.
Courtesy in Tutorials/Studios
All mobile phones are to be turned off during seminar presentations and group discussion sessions. Laptop computers may only be used for purposes directly related to the seminar/group discussion (i.e. no games, emailing, internet browsing etc.).
