This subject was previously known as Architecture Studio.
This subject examines the relationship between idea, space, form and structure as it is related to human culture and a specific site. It engages in analysis, interpretation and creation of architectural language of the built environment through small projects using methods of communication concurrently being developed in other subjects. Work integrated learning is introduced through developing and understanding of the design process in architectural practice.
