Architecture Studio 101 (BDES1010)
UNIT OF STUDY
Architecture Studio 101 introduces students to the skills and knowledge required to produce creative, innovative and appropriate solutions to architectural problems. It seeks to develop the architectural imagination as a dialogue between poetic thought and pragmatic material circumstance, nurturing the capacity to move back and forth between conceptual, intuitive levels of reference and the precise skills required for credible technical resolution. It expands students' vocabulary of architecture through study of relevant precedents and examination of techniques for spatial organization. Students develop a preliminary understanding of contemporary architectural theory and deploy a range of architectural representation techniques.
