The focus of this studio is comprehensive architectural design -­‐  a synthesis of conceptual and building techniques addressing design concept, program, site, construction, and technology. Students’ work will need to be informed by exploration of  urban issues, history and culture as well as materiality and craft.  In addition, design proposals will be expected to address structure and environmental systems, life safety, accessibility and material assemblies. During the semester, students will be engaged with the aesthetic, technical, social, and environmental aspects of design and will consider matters ranging from the scale of the city to the tectonic detail.

Due to the  comprehensive nature of this studio, students are required to take an active  and critical position that synthesizes these wide-­‐ranging and often conflicting considerations into an integrated proposal that is coherent in conceptual, formal and technical terms.
