  1. generate a number of hypotheses in response to an identified architectural problem in relation to a given site
  2. evaluate key issues associated with an architectural problem in order to develop the selected hypothesis into a schematic design
  3. apply strategies and systems to aid the development of a resolved architectural proposition.

This subject was previously known as Architecture Design and Technical Integration Studio.

This studio is a culmination of the Architecture Studio subjects for the Bachelor of Applied Science. It explores the design of buildings of medium rise, complexity and scale. The subject emphasises the integration of architecture and technological considerations like structure, services, envelope and environmental strategies and their relationship with site. Work integrated learning is incorporated through a range of strategies and decision making processes pertinent to design and construction in architectural practice.

This subject has BAS300 Architecture Design 5 and BAS305 Architecture Methods 5 as mandatory prerequisites. If you have completed BAS300 prior to 2015, you are not required to enrol into BAS305 as BAS300 was previously counted as double subject. Please get a prerequisite waiver from Curtin to proceed with enrolment in BAS330.

Please Note: If it’s your first time studying a Curtin University subject you’ll need to complete their compulsory ‘Academic Integrity Program’. It only takes two hours to complete online, and provides you with vital information about studying with Curtin University. The Academic Integrity Program is compulsory, so if it’s not completed your subject grades will be withheld.
