This unit develops students' ability in architectural brief writing and formulating a research proposal in design. It requires the development of intellectual discipline, judgment, self-awareness and criticism in relation to architectural design problems, concepts and strategies. Students undertake studies of precedents and historical, social, environmental, technological, regulatory and contextual issues as part of the brief writing process. They are also introduced to rigorous and speculative processes of testing through design research inquiry. The final outcome is the preparation of an architectural brief and design speculations, which form the basis of the culminating design studio project in KDA754 Professional Project 2.
