ARH 608: ADVANCED DESIGN STUDIO 1: CONCEPT, CONTEXT, AND TYPOLOGY
In this advanced Design Studio, you will engage in a stimulating and intensive design process. You will investigate concept, context and typology, such as physical site characteristics, environmental and programmatic factors, as well as cultural and societal developments that influence architectural design. Your design work will be supported by a thorough analysis and understanding of type, program, and site. Eventually, you will explore the synthesis of an architectural concept from early design schematics to its final physical manifestation. Engage in a comprehensive process and learn how to address architecture on an abstract conceptual level, while simultaneously, question and consider holistic implications at the finer scale of architectural idea, tectonics, space, and detail.
