Develops students' ability to understand the notion of 'context' in the broadest cultural sense through the exploration of an adaptive reuse project, developing an appreciation for both built fabric and the cultural meaning of places. The unit also focuses on the social content of architectural programs, supported by related social and cultural theory explored in KDA312 History and Theory in Design 5. In addition, it provides a vehicle for exploration of Building Technology `key themes` in relation to medium scale buildings and indoor environments, in KDA313 Building Technology in Design 5.
This unit may be co-taught with unit KDA319 to allow for blended or discipline specific assessment tasks.
