About this subject
At the completion of this subject students will be able to:
- generate a number of design hypotheses in response to an identified architectural problem in relation to a given site and brief
- evaluate key issues associated with an architectural problem in order to develop the selected hypothesis into a schematic design
- develop a resolved architectural proposition informed through architectural readings and communicated through architectural drawings that integrates cultural, environmental and structural considerations such as building systems and materials
- buildings of medium rise, complexity and scale.
- the integration of architecture and technological considerations
- environmental strategies and their relationship with site.
This subject was previously known as Architecture Design 6.
This studio is the capstone design subject being the culmination of the architectural studios for the Bachelor of Applied Science. It explores a civic building of medium rise complexity and scale. The subject emphasises the integration of architectural, cultural and technological considerations like structure, services, envelop and environmental strategies in relation to 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 and BAS305 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.
