11221 Architectural Design: Strategy

Requisite(s): 11211 Architectural Design: Forming AND 11209 Architectural Design: Making



This subject introduces students to a rigorous understanding of architectural strategy within the design process. Strategy thus entails an exploration of how architectural notions such as material, program, context, transparency and politics are balanced in order to produce disciplinary arguments around the procedural production of architecture. Although this exploration entails an understanding of exteriority, the subject focuses on how the architectural notions mentioned play out within the architectural interior. The studio frames these disciplinary arguments through how a procedural process effects and manipulates architectural grid systems. An important part of this process is to spatialise and understand the social and tectonic aspects of design decisions through strategic methods.
