You must either have successfully completed the following subject(s) before starting this subject, or currently be enrolled in the following subject(s) in a prior study period; or enrol in the following subject(s) to study prior to this subject:
Please note that your enrolment in this subject is conditional on successful completion of these prerequisite subject(s). If you study the prerequisite subject(s) in the study period immediately prior to studying this subject, your result for the prerequisite subject(s) will not be finalised prior to the close of enrolment. In this situation, should you not complete your prerequisite subject(s) successfully you should not continue with your enrolment in this subject. If you are currently enrolled in the prerequisite subject(s) and believe you may not complete these all successfully, it is your responsibility to reschedule your study of this subject to give you time to re-attempt the prerequisite subject(s)
This subject has BAS140 Architecture and Interior Architecture Design Studio 1 - Small Structures and BAS145 Architecture and Interior Architecture Methods 1B - Digital Literacy as mandatory prerequisites. Students who have completed BAS200 PRIOR to 2015 are not required to enrol into BAS205 as it was previously counted as double subject. *** Level 2 subjects normally assume an introductory level of prior knowledge in this area, e.g. from studying related Level 1 subjects or other relevant experience. Ensure all Level 1 subjects have been completed before moving to Level 2. ***
- Equipment requirements - Audio video equipment required. Access to hardware: webcam, speakers and microphone.
- Software requirements - Software purchase required.
- Other requirements - Additional materials. Access to the internet. Provide an email address.
This subject was previously known as Architecture Methods 3.
This subject informs the architectural design processes and investigates the relationships and translations between digital and physical modelling, drawings and their application in design. 3D Software for modelling and fabrication are employed for prototyping and representation of architectural materials and space.
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.
