This subject was previously known as Architecture Design 3.
This subject introduces students to different spatial typologies and explores the relationship between site and people. A hypothetical client is introduced to inform the formulation of a design brief and the idea of tailoring a design solution to an individual person, within a residential typology. The design proposition focuses on understanding spatial typologies and applying this knowledge to the design of a small building and its interior in a given setting. Work Integrated Learning is incorporated through simulated studio processes focused on investigation of spatial typologies in a real site, and interaction with community, climate and environment.
This subject has BAS140 Architecture Habitation Studio and BAS145 Architectural Habitation Methods as mandatory prerequisites. If you have completed BAS140 prior to 2015, you are not required to enrol into BAS145 as BAS140 was previously counted as double subject. Please get a prerequisite waiver from Curtin to proceed with enrolment in BAS200.
*** Level 2 subjects normally assume an introductory level of prior knowledge in this area, e.g. from studying related Level 1 subjects or other relevant experience. Ensure all Level 1 subjects have been completed before moving to Level 2. ***
