Course Objectives The theme of ARCH 201 is Habitation. The studio will allow students to explore the design process through two projects, each of which contains a number of discreet learning modules. It will build upon the skills gained during last years studio courses, and will focus more on the dialogue created between the building and its setting. (site and users surrounding environment, world)
Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • Will be able to demonstrate an improved level of three-dimensional thinking for the design of buildings of a broadly domestic scale.
  • Will be able to analyse best practice in architecture through the study of precedents.
  • Will be able to apply drawing and model making skills both as design tools and as means of representation.
  • Will be able to have a basic knowledge of industry standard software.
  • Will be able to apply the basic characteristics of building structures (tension, compression, bending, torsion) and understand the relationship between structure and fabric in the creation of a tectonic unity.
  • Will be able to apply time management skills to the various deadlines.
Course Description The first architectural design studio focuses on the design of space, architectural forms and elements in relation to our bodies and senses, and the surrounding environment. Visual, environmental, structural and functional aspects are considered throughout the design process. Design studio is the main focus of architectural education. Other professional courses such as architectural history and construction support and enrich the studio.
