ARCH 7001 Graduate Design Studio I

Graduate Design Studio I introduces students to the process of design through a series of exercises that asks them to engage the questions of the profession, first in isolation, then in combination, with each assignment adding new parameters or tasks to their current body of work. The language in this studio is limited to the most basic words in the design catalog, dealing in space, volume, assembly, line, rhythm, measure, depth, structure, solid, and void. The intent of this course is to assemble a functional base built from the fundamental and indispensable language of design, leaving the student to expand and further tailor this diction in future studios and courses.
