This subject focuses on the ‘making’ of outputs emanating from complex buildings design. Students will develop a series of outputs which describe the design from the co-requisite Complex Buildings Research Studio, in written, graphical and oral presentation forms.
Work Integrated Learning will be incorporated throughout the subject by using a mode of teaching where design activity will take place in workshop situations/ on sites/ simulation of the real world project/ interaction with community and industry etc.
