ARCH 7306 - Design Studio 5, 6 Credits

Prerequisite(s): ARCH 6306 with C or better or CIAT 6306 with C or better

Level: Upper

This studio focuses on the design of buildings and places in an urban setting that require an intense concentration of support systems. The course exploration and study of architectural design, technology and planning principles is designed to bridge the gap between architectural theory and practice through the design of structures and places for human use and inspiration. Students will be expected to progress through the schematic design and design development phases of short-term and extended design projects. Conventional medial and three-dimensional computer modeling will be used to define, analyze and present solutions to complex architectural problems. Assignments and in-class exercises related to design, theory, technology and criticism will also be used to reinforce topics discussed in class.
