Course Objectives To gain mastery of research, concept development, formal manipulation, and technical skill applied to architectural design projects of medium scale as well as to gain basic experience in urban design and site planning.
Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • Will be able to perform design-based formal experimentation,
  • Will be able to apply urban analysis techniques to a given project site,
  • Will be able to develop an urban design proposal at neighborhood scale
  • Will be able to generate, test and evaluate architectural concepts,
  • Will be able to apply architectural concepts as strategies for design projects,
  • Will be able to demonstrate technical mastery in architectural project execution,
  • Will be able to investigate and utilize contemporary structural and material systems
Course Description The semester long project starts with analysis of precedents and site, continues with developing proposals at neighborhood and building scale. Explorations are done to understand the unique capacity of architecture to convey meaning through spatial and formal means.
