Professional Project 2 KDA772




This is the final unit and culmination of the MArch program, requiring students to develop selected design project from KDA 711 Professional Project 1 from site analysis and initial concept, through preliminary design, design development and preliminary constructional design stages, to final presentation.

The major architectural studio project in this unit will develop students' ability to program and manage a semester-long project, to present their work in a professional manner and to articulate clearly the rationale behind the sequence of decisions that have led to the final design proposal.

The aim of the unit is for students to demonstrate the skills, knowledge and understanding needed in the design of a major project and to demonstrate these at a level appropriate to a student at the end of five years study in architecture as described by the Australian Institute of Architects Education Policy and the relevant Architectural Accreditation Council of Australia (AACA) competencies.
