11227 Architectural Design: Performance

6cp; 1–1.5hpw
Requisite(s): 11211 Architectural Design: Forming AND 11209 Architectural Design: Making



This subject introduces students to the concept of architectural performance, understood as the capacity of architecture to catalyse multi-scalar interaction processes. The application of both qualitative and quantitative methods permits students to incorporate urban, programmatic, environmental, and social interactions within their architectural proposals.

Students are required to address performance as a negotiation between architecture, actors and environment that integrates concepts of interaction, responsiveness and efficiency. The study of these parameters is key in guiding the design decisions across the different scales of the project and understanding the implications of design in the definition of the city and public infrastructures.
