This studio emphasises how successful architectural designs express ideas based in well-grounded, critical thinking, and on values manifest in visions of desired futures. Through design projects and analysis of seminal works, students will develop both design ideas for projects and architectural expressions of those ideas. Autonomous studio options will cover a range of project types including housing, public institutions and urban design, taught with an emphasis on architecture as idea, materiality or program. The studio will be vertically integrated with Architectural Design Studios D & E to ensure a wide range of choice and inter-level learning.
