|School||Edinburgh College of Art
||College||College of Humanities and Social Science
|Credit level (Normal year taken)||SCQF Level 8 (Year 2 Undergraduate)
||Availability||Not available to visiting students
|Summary||The module takes the concept of site and situation as its focus. This theme is supplemented by those of public and private, place and identity. These themes collectively inform a set of architectural design exercises that have greater complexity than those tackled at Stage 1. The thematic scope of the module serves as a context to introduce critical and selfreflexive dimensions of architectural design, and the development of skills in design inquiry. The module addresses digital media and explores their consequences for the representation and fabrication in architecture.
