ARCH 213 - Architectural Design Core Studio III


Prerequisites: ARCH 114 
Core Studio III concentrates on the exploration of a rational design methodology through the process of analysis, synthesis and transformation. Through a series of short exercises and comprehensive projects, students are encouraged to develop a conceptual basis for their work, with an emphasis on site, climate and the environment, along with the principles of organization, including spatial hierarchy, circulation and structure, as determinants of architectural form. Students will quickly generate multiple viable solutions for each project and will present their work in a variety of formats from quick conceptual sketches and models to carefully crafted drawings. There will be a concentration on the design of space in section and an ongoing study of the quality of light. Students explore the potential of the sites they visit through in-depth inquiries and are introduced to design in an urban context. There is an emphasis on three-dimensional visual communication skills and the start of the integration of computer drawings into the studio. A series of theme based faculty lectures will augment the studio work. Students are required to present a digital portfolio at the middle and end of the semester. Minimum Passing Grade: Minimum passing grade of “C” is required.
