Course Introduction:

ARCH 3502 examines the underlying strategies, tactics and techniques of integration. Emphasis is placed on developing a systematic approach to architectural design while simultaneously dealing with the development of design theory and intellectual inquiry. Proficiency in architectural design is acquired through focused iteration. The studio integrates building systems and codes with previously introduced architectural design issues:

formal ordering systems (space, form, light, scale, proportion), precedents/case studies, development of research, writing, and graphic/technical documentation skills, site, context, environmental conservation, and accessibility, building program, structural order, materials/assemblies and development of design details.
