Design Integration Lab: Capstone - BAEN3002

Year - 2018

As the culminating design studio for the degree, the capstone project combines knowledge, criteria and methods of the disciplines of Architecture, Urban Planning, and Architectural Science. Students are presented with the opportunity to express and represent their own positioning through the analysis for and design of a sufficiently complex building, city structure, or town centre. The studio consolidates the students' abilities in identifying and solving problems and critical aspects for architecture and the built environment using a range of advanced modelling, simulation and optimization techniques and methods. The aim for students is to produce integrated and compelling pre-professional architectural design projects prompted by the critical reflection of city, policy, site, heritage, scale, program, thermal comfort, material, construction, structure, light, and acoustics). With completion of this unit, students demonstrate their understanding of a spectrum of architectural practice and the built environment, including architectural design, history and theory; urban design, planning and policy; and architectural science aspects such as energy, light, construction and acoustics, services, and heritage. By specialising in a select suite of these aspects, students prepare for career-pathways as offered by the faculty's full range of postgraduate courses.
