ARCH 5002 Honors: Architectural Design Concentration

The Honors Architectural Design Concentration independent research studio emphasizes an architectural problem developed around faculty expertise and emerging opportunities in the profession and is an opportunity for motivated students to define their own research and design goals. Each student develops their own proposed field of investigation, site, program, and question. Students work with the instructor to define a methodology and to propose range of techniques with which to best investigate their topic. Each student composes their individual advisory committee. At least one member of the committee must be from the School of Architecture, and the remainder is assembled of members from other disciplines within the university or professionals working in the field. Meetings and reviews are held with this committee throughout the semester to advance research. Projects will result in fully developed research and design methodologies and preliminary design proposals.
