ARCH 7006 Graduate Design Studio VI

Graduate Design Studio VI focuses on the comprehensive design development of a building program into a terminal project emphasizing the tectonics, mechanics, and presentation critical to the profession. Projects represent the culmination of the architecture design process, the synthesis of conceptual ideology with the very tangible mechanics and tectonics architecture. An architect’s ability to integrate and coordinate these components in the development of a project is fundamental. The semester is arranged as an escalation, an expansion step by step, where each phase informs the next, and each phase must be completed in order to continue to the next. These phases draw on the skills the students have accumulated in the past years and combined, result in architecture.
