At the completion of this subject students will be able to:
research and analyse best practice exemplars and case studies as a tool for referencing and generating a creative and imaginative design response to brief, site, user intent and built purpose.
integrate design knowledge and industry requirements to produce a coherent conceptual design.
develop and present a detailed design with an increasing level of functional and technical resolution that articulates conceptual thinking whilst integrating construction systems, materials and building services.
This subject was previously known as MAA503 Integrated Buildings Research Studio.
This subject focuses on the process of design, developed through industry based projects and requirements. Students will design a small-scale architectural project to a high level of resolution, while addressing statutory planning, building and client requirements. Best practice exemplars and cases studies will be referred to as a foundation for design. There will be a fieldwork component, the nature of which is dependent upon the focus of research. Work Integrated Learning will be incorporated throughout the subject by using a mode of teaching where activities will take place in workshop situations/on sites/simulation of the real-world project/interaction with community and industry.
