Honours Studio (MARF5201)


Honours Studio replaces MARC5001 as the culminating studio of the degree. On the basis of the student's own in-depth research, the Honours Studio develops a design project to a high level of resolution. The design project may be linked to research being carried out in the Honours Report unit of study. On the successful completion of this unit, students will have demonstrated: an ability to develop a design project arising out of, and grounded in, their own research; an ability to undertake a design project that incorporates all technical and theoretical aspects appropriate to that project; an ability to communicate and present the design ideas together with the theoretical ground for those design ideas using appropriate graphic, written, and verbal presentation techniques.
