In this unit students demonstrate their ability to generate design concepts and resolve a design for a complex, multi variable commercial, retail, residential, public or multi use project and to manage the design project with a minimum of guidance. Students work in a collegial relationship with studio staff through critiques of work in progress in which students develop their ability to communicate with designer colleagues based on self critique to a professional level. Key areas of focus are the design concept as an expression of a developed personal theoretical position on design and its innovative technical resolution. This unit requires students to work within the regulatory environment and develops initial skills for designing to a budget. Students communicate their final designs to a panel of professional designers, academics and peers. This unit is closely aligned to KDA320 Healthy Interior Environments.
