Subject Overview:

This subject explores the documentation and representation of particular sites that are related to Design 5 or of the students own choice. The subject is considered highly related to design methodologies, but deals with design considerations outside the design studio context. Sites are explored through a number of themes and representational techniques. These themes are further investigated through the subject reader, lectures and seminar discussions. Equal emphasis is placed on theoretical problems of understanding contemporary contexts and representational techniques for documenting specific places. The major submission requires a well researched and presented study of a complex site.
