This subject was previously known as BAS340 Environmental and Technological Systems in Architecture 2.
This subject explores construction, environmental and management strategies for application in the design of moderately complex, medium scale and medium rise architectural projects. Students are engaged in developing and applying the written and drawn communication skills, organisational skills and decision making processes required for professional practice. Work integrated learning is incorporated through authentic learning activities focused on application of a range of skills and strategies pertinent to design and construction of architecture that simulate the real world projects and workplaces.
