Course Objectives The second architectural studio focuses on architectural design in relation to user, site and context by considering aesthetic, structural, functional and environmental aspects. It also aims to develop the resolution of form, structure and detailing. The studio also aims to advance the skills explored during the first semester. During the spring semester, using a multitude of variables, students will improve their understanding of the relationship between a building, its site and its user.
Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • Will be able to analyze different kinds of structural systems in classic examples of architecture and as a process component in architectural design projects.
  • Will be able to apply an understanding of the ways in which structural type affects form and space-making to architectural design projects.
  • Will be able to apply a knowledge of architectural tectonics—structure, materials, construction, and assembly—to design projects.
  • Will be able to design projects of increasing complexity and specificity in terms of program, context, user, and building organization.
  • Will be able to apply computer aided drawing and design tools, along with traditional means of making and representation, as investigative tools and in the communication of design ideas.
  • Will be able to evaluate the relationship between a building and its environmental determinants, site, context, and topography, through the study of classic architectural examples and as part of a comprehensive design process.
  • Will be able to apply analytical and research skills in the process of design.
Course Description The second architectural studio focuses on architectural design in relation to materials and context by considering aesthetic, theoretical, technical and functional aspects. It aims to develop the resolution of spatial organization in parallel with a conscious response to program. It consists of analytical projects that introduce contextual, environmental and material awareness, which in turn advance spatial awareness
