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.
