Architecture Research Areas - ARCH4008

Year - 2020

Architecture Research Areas familiarises students with the three broad research areas of: architectural design; architectural theory and history; and architectural technologies. Academics with differing backgrounds and approaches to architectural research contribute to a suite of lectures, discussing their own projects and initiatives within the broader context of their research area. Students come to understand the theoretical underpinnings of each area and become generally conversant with their contemporary concerns and methodologies. They conduct a limited-scope research project of their own that enables them to pursue their own emerging area of interest in architectural research.
