This course requires students to apply their knowledge and skills related to architecture and urbanisation, specifically the living and working environments associated with high density occupation and hybrid, complex programs within cities. The course addresses relevant economic, environmental, political, regulatory, socio-cultural and technical contexts. The architectural proposition is theoretically and strategically developed in response to the urban context and situation of the city. Through developed research, discussion and critique, students present their architectural propositions using diverse media that integrates architectural design, communication, environmental consideration, creativity, construction detail, technology and services.
