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.
