The core of the undergraduate design sequence is the development of both design thinking and dexterity with tools. Students will undertake a series of studio-based exercises in design demanding greater synthesis of diverse requirements and leading to increasingly resolved designs.
A variety of exploratory and analytic thinking methods, from concept mapping such as charting, will be introduced alongside a range of three-dimensional media, from digital modelling to physical modelling. Linking these investigations will be the theme of air, which may be explored conceptually, metaphorically, structurally, or technologically – e.g. atmosphere, acoustics (auditoria), music, inflatables, air flow and air quality, ventilation and cooling, wind turbines and wind forces.
Having completed this subject it is expected that the student be able to:
