This subject was previously known as Architectural Discourse and Spatial Intelligence Studio.
This subject explores the use of theoretical positions in thinking about and making architecture. The subject uses precedent studies to generate diversity in students’ design approach to architecture. The design proposition engages a site at the periphery of the metropolis and is a medium scale public building. Work integrated learning is incorporated through the exploration and expression of theoretical positions through design simulating the real world conditions.
*** Level 3 subjects normally assume an introductory level of prior knowledge in this area, e.g. from studying related Level 2 subjects or other relevant experience. Ensure all Level 2 subjects have been completed before moving to Level 3. ***
