This subject was previously known as Architecture Habitation Studio.
This subject explores the sense of place and the notion of inhabitation in architecture. It explores the built environment as a representation of collective values, investigates the relationship between ideas and architecture, and develops an understanding of primary architectural components: space, form, structure and materials. It refers to and uses communication methods taught concurrently in other subjects. This subject requires students to create new structures for inhabitation at a personal scale that engage well with a given landscape. Work Integrated Learning is incorporated through the design of projects on a real site.
