Architectural Design V

Architectural Design V emphasizes the development of individual expression of architectural intent in relationship to site analysis and planning, functional planning, programming, and resolution of structural and architectural systems. Through the examination of relationships between constructs of site, material, structure, and construction techniques, students investigate the creation of built form in hot-wet versus hot-dry climates to create compelling and performative spaces. Central to this investigation is the role of technique in the formation of architectural work in reference to the design potential of construction processes, selection, and assembly of materials and organization of site and structure.
