|Site(s) for this Unit:||
|Pre-Requisites:||BDES1020 OR DESA1002.|
|Brief Handbook Description:||Architecture Studio 201 introduces principles of urban landscape, including an understanding of urban ecological and socio-cultural processes as they impact and influence understandings of place and the siting and design of buildings in built topographies. Learning objectives in the first part of the semester include development of knowledge and skills in analysis and the conceptual configuration of contexts that may involve contested ideas and competing interests. In the second part of the semester approaches to the siting, spatial composition and design through urban landscape and architectural strategies that support social sustainability, and an awareness of the inter-connectedness between context and architecture, are explored.|
|Tutor/s:||Sean Anderson, Nikolina Bobic, Samantha Donnelly, Haris Dzonlagic, Arne Heeres, Claudia Perren, Mano Ponnambalam, Chris Smith, Thomas Stromberg|
|T&L Activities:||Lectures and studios as detailed in the Schedule.
Attributes listed here represent the key course goals (see Course Map tab) designated for this unit. The list below describes how these attributes are developed through practice in the unit. See Learning Outcomes and Assessment tabs for details of how these attributes are assessed.
|Attribute Development Method||Attribute Developed|
|To explore the urban landscape and its relation to major architectures. To demonstrate an understanding of the urban landscape and its enfolding and unfolding through the design process and in the proposed architectures.||Information, literacy, learning and research skills|
|To demonstrate experimentation and integration of architectural technologies, tectonics and materiality||Technical skills and knowledge|
|To demonstrate an ability in using visual, verbal and written communication methods and skills, and appropriate media to test, appraise and represent ideas and designs||Documentation, techniques of representation and communication|
|To use conceptual notions as a basis to engage experimentally with major architectures. To deal with an urban space as a performance, as a productive force, in a complex and questioning manner. To demonstrate an ability to express the socio/ political/ cultural/ architectural/ aesthetic reference points that inform the design work and to which the design work relates.||Problem-solving, design, and/or planning (Level 2)|
|To investigate the language of an architectural style through critique.||Theoretical, social and/or historic engagement|
|To engage a personal ethical framework and philosophy as a basis for complex decision making processes.||Professionalism: Social and environmental ethics|
|To engage with critical thinking through group-working; (including) preparation and contribution to tutorials and presentations.||Professionalism: Collaboration and practice|

These goals are selected from Architecture Contextualized Graduate Attributes. which defines overall goals for courses where this unit is primarily offered. See Architecture Contextualized Graduate Attributes. for details of the attributes and levels to be developed in the course as a whole. Percentage figures alongside each course goal provide a rough indication of their relative weighting in assessment for this unit. Note that not all goals are necessarily part of assessment. Some may be more about practice activity. See Learning outcomes for details of what is assessed in relation to each goal and Assessment for details of how the outcome is assessed. See Attributes for details of practice provided for each goal.
