Discovering Architecture
Credits: 3
Grad Meth: Reg, P-F, Aud
Prerequisite: Permission of ARCH-Architecture Program.
Introduction to architecture and design studio education. The course examines fundamental design principles and skills related to architecture. The design studio projects apply ideas and concepts introduced in lectures, readings and on site visits. The design studio projects are both analytic and synthetic in nature. The explicit goals of the course are: To explore the discipline of architecture; To promote visual thinking and representational skills; To develop analytic design thinking skills; To learn some of the conventions of architectural representation; To enhance cultural awareness of architecture and design.
Students learn about careers in architecture, landscape architecture and urban planning. Architecture faculty teach basic design principles that students use to complete their own design project in a design studio environment.
