|Subject Overview:||This studio emphasizes how successful architectural designs express ideas based in well-grounded, critical thinking, and on values manifest in visions of desired futures. Through design projects and analysis of seminal works, students will develop both design ideas for projects and architectural expressions of those ideas. Autonomous studio options will cover a range of project types including housing, public institutions and urban design, taught with an emphasis on architecture as idea, materiality or program. Students will be expected to choose a different emphasis and project type than for Studio C and to achieve a higher degree of design resolution, conceptual engagement and aesthetic expression. The studio will be vertically integrated with Architectural Design Studios C & E to ensure a wide range of choice and inter-level learning. |
On completion of this subject, students should be able to:
Successfully create and resolve the design of a building of medium complexity
|Assessment:||Documentation and presentation of design projects (including one or more reports or a reflective journal) to the equivalent of 10,000 words. Up to 10 marks are reserved for explicit evidence of reflective and creative thinking.|
