Course Description

In this advanced Design Studio, you will engage in an integrated building design from concept to final detail. Engage in an investigative process fostering multiple iterations, in the conception of a holistic building design. You will be making integrated decisions across multiple systems and environmental conditions in the completion of a complex architectural project. Learn how a building design is influenced by and formed through its technical and tectonic consistency of idea, space, structure, and detail.
