This subject is the introductory studio in the Bachelor of Design in Architecture and Bachelor of Landscape Architecture studio sequence. The subject provides the framework to learn essential techniques for the production of spaces as well as important strategies in critical and analytical thinking. The subject introduces students to three key themes: body, organisation and context. These themes serve as a common knowledge base critical to the practice of architecture and landscape architecture as well as provide a primer to issues that students continue to face in the sequence of studios ahead.
A constraint-based process is used to inform a series of both two-dimensional and three-dimensional exercises. Students gain an understanding of the design process; develop an understanding of our relationships to space, form, sequence and the environment; undergo rigorous research and iterative design; and develop strategies for translating concepts into spatial solutions.
