Description

This subject aims to further architectural design skills through the integration of a specific research agenda that may be tested through project-based speculations. The research agenda comprises a particular topic selected from a range of discipline areas including, but not limited to, computation and digital design in architecture and manufacturing, material and construction in architecture, environmental and performance-based design in architecture, urban design, and activism and the role of the architect and design within critical cultural discourse. The subject also enhances a critical understanding of architecture as both a discipline with an existing body of knowledge and a set of practices that continuously challenge and add to that body of knowledge. The subject requires the testing of ideas and modes of practice in architectural design, and the production of design proposals that accurately and persuasively convey the most relevant ideas and practices at an introductory level.

This subject is the first of four studio subjects required to complete the Master of Architecture (C04235).
