Architectural Design 4B

20 Units

Develops issues associated with the city and urbanisation and specifically, the economic, environmental, political, regulatory, socio-cultural and technical contexts of complex high density inner-city mixed-use development. A choice of project client, site and program is offered and design theories and strategies are developed that respond to the unique characteristics of each project. Through progressive research, discussion and critique, students develop and present theoretical frameworks and project proposals using 2 and 3 dimensional media that integrates communication, environmental, project management, technical and theoretical knowledge.
