|Summary||Architectural Design Studio A is a 40-credit, core course that runs in Semester 1, it is a continuation of Architectural Design Studio C (Integrated) and Architectural Design Studio D (Integrated) from year 1 and a pass in both of those studios, as well as in Architectural Technology Research and Studies in Contemporary Architectural Theory is necessary to progress into Architectural Design Studio A (Integrated). The course will be described through an initial presentation to students, and subsequently through briefing materials made available to them. The emphasis in this course falls upon the development and refinement of the structural, material, technical, environmental and legislative aspects of the student's design project. These, however, are not pursued as ends in themselves, but as part of a fully integrated design project guided by conceptual, theoretical, contextual and ethical concerns.
