This subject situates Architecture and Landscape Architecture as disciplines with professional obligations toward sustainability and application of architectural technologies to comply with safety and regulatory contexts. The subject recognises that the discipline of Architecture is contingent not only on good design skills but on developing an advanced knowledge that responds to complex, contemporary and often urgent conditions, scaling from the domestic to the planetary. Advocacy explores methods and formats that equip students with the ability to clearly undertand and apply knowledge in sustainability and technology through the lens of professional practice and the requirements therein within the field of architecture. In this subject, students learn from case studies of projects that deploy advanced and exemplary methods of sustainability and technology application before critically applying that knowledge in design development contexts.
