Architecture Design Studio 3 KDA211




This unit develops fundamental skills in design, including site analysis, preliminary design and sketch design. Students explore and integrate design criteria including contextual response, activity support and construction principles. The studio will emphasise designing in section and responding to human habitation patterns. Architectural design students will need to demonstrate an ability to design small to medium scale buildings of moderate complexity and successfully integrate them with either an infill or green field site.

Some studio components of KDA212 History and Theory in Design 3 and KDA213 Building Technology in Design 3/ KDA210 Interior Materials and Components will extend the practice of studio design.

This unit may be co-taught with unit KDA209 to allow for blended or discipline specific assessment tasks.
