Architecture Studio 201 - BDES2010

Year - 2020

Architecture Studio 201 introduces principles of urban landscape, including an understanding of urban ecological and socio-cultural processes as they impact and influence understandings of place and the siting and design of buildings in built topographies. Learning objectives in the first part of the semester include development of knowledge and skills in analysis and the conceptual configuration of contexts that may involve contested ideas and competing interests. In the second part of the semester approaches to the siting, spatial composition and design through urban landscape and architectural strategies that support social sustainability, and an awareness of the inter-connectedness between context and architecture, are explored.

Lecture and studio contact, plus self-directed preparation and assignments, for a minimum total student commitment averaging 9 hours per week.
