The architectural design studio provides the creative framework for students to explore how a diverse set of performative criteria informs a design inquiry. Through the project brief, students learn to balance urban, environmental, social and programmatic strategies with the technical and material parameters of an architectural project.
The subject explores the development and testing of architectural strategies within the design process. Students develop tactics for the procedural production of architecture and experiment with digital and analogue techniques. The subject synthesises physical notions of materiality, transparency, weight, and structure, with the programmatic, political and contextual conditions of the project.
The studio frames a series of procedural experiments, exploring the material and spatial potentials of the architecture. Students advance their construction knowledge to define their own disciplinary arguments around procedures of production. Structural systems, forms and material behaviours are considered.
