ARC 1201 - ARCHITECTURE DESIGN STUDIO 1


Minimum Credits: 6
Maximum Credits: 6
At the core of every nationally accredited school of architecture is the design studio. The design studio integrates skills learned in other architecture courses in the production of a design project. This course prepares students for the rigor of the architectural design process and exposes them to the unique pedagogical experience of a design studio. This course is designed to give students who are majoring in architectural studies and who intend to pursue a professional degree in architecture at the graduate level exposure to a sophisticated conceptual framework for thinking about three-dimensional composition and architectural problem solving. The course is also intended to emphasize the necessity of excellent graphic skills and technical skills in model-making to communicating design ideas. This course is meant to serve as an intermediary step between the /architectural studies seminar/ (HAA 1913) and the studio arts requirements for the architectural studies major, and the more advanced architectural design work in HAA 1917.
