ARH 310: STUDIO 5: ASSEMBLY BUILDING & CONTEXT

 

In this course, students study design principles, process and thinking in the design of an assembly building. As part of their study, students will focus on architectural programming, diagramming and a critical analysis of site and context. Students will explore the role of society, community, and culture in the development of a critical viewpoint. Introduction of structural systems and architectural access will be integrated in the design process.

Prerequisite: ARH 250, ARH 390, LA 292, LA 219 (C- or higher), LA 296 (C- or higher), and either LA 293 (C- or higher) or LA 256 or Quantitative Literacy Exam score of 400 or higher.
