Honours Intensive Studio 1 - BDES1028

Year - 2020

In Honours Intensive Studio 1 students produce an architectural design project in response to a studio brief set by a leading visiting academic or practicing architect that critically engages with issues of contemporary concern to the city of Sydney. The specific architectural brief and its theoretical underpinnings vary from year to year. Students develop their project in a studio setting alongside their peers over the course of one week, impelled by a suite of lectures and seminars that address key themes of the project. They informally present their work in progress for critical feedback at various times during the week, and at its conclusion they communicate their final architectural proposition to a design jury via a set of drawings and models supported by a verbal presentation. The work conducted during the intensive studio is finally assembled in a portfolio, which is due at a later date. The portfolio is a well-designed, carefully composed and clearly articulated summary document evidencing a critical and creative engagement with the studio.
