Anti-requisite(s): 11173 Landscape Architecture Studio 2: Making AND 11215 Architectural Design: Making
This subject introduces students to the design potentials of diverse structural, material and organisational approaches in architecture. A constraint-based, iterative process is used to inform a series of both two-dimensional and three-dimensional exercises. Students are challenged to engage and develop their analytical skills in order to derive a conceptual framework that delivers a speculative architectural proposition relative to a specified context.
As the second Design studio in the core foundation year, students continue to develop their skills in iteration to rationalise relationships between structure, form and programmatic organisation in reference to a set of architectural precedent case studies. These precedent studies act as a prompt for new design potentials and formal outcomes, which are then applied to a specific brief. Representational processes and techniques across mixed media are deployed and there is a focus on key architecture and design practitioners and theorists.
