Architecture Studio 202 - BDES2020

Year - 2018

Architecture Studio 202 requires the design of a moderately complex building in an urban context. Students develop an increased awareness of the broader social, cultural and environmental consequences of architectural decisions. The design process that is fostered explores the creative tension between intuition and prescription, using accumulative techniques that are intended to elicit unexpected solutions. Participatory and collaborative work processes are promoted and students are required to sensitively and imaginatively negotiate between the internal logic of the design approach and urban strategies. They become increasingly attentive to the complexities of architectural design, from the interpretation of programmatic requirements in respect to the opportunities and limitations of particular site conditions to the spatial and tectonic implications of design decisions.
