SCQF Credits40 ECTS Credits20
SummaryArchitectural Design Studio B is a 40-credit, core course that runs in Semester 2 of year 2, it is linked to the first semester year 2 course Architectural Design Studio G (Modular) and all students MUST have passed this first semester course as well as the first semester course Architectural Management, Practice and Law before entering Architectural Design Studio B (Modular). Students should also have passed the year 1 courses Architectural Design Studio C (Modular) and Architectural Design Studio D (Modular), as well as Architectural Technology Research and Studies in Contemporary Architectural Theory. A varying number of design units, running in parallel with one another, may be offered in this course. Students will elect to take one of the units. Some of the units may have prerequisites, although each will meet the same learning outcomes. The units offered will be described through an initial presentation to students, and subsequently through briefing materials made available to them. The emphasis in this module 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.

On completion of this course, the student is expected to demonstrate:

LO1 A sophisticated approach to the programmatic organization, arrangement and structuring of a complex architectural assemblage in a loaded contextual situation (eg. the built, social, historical, technological, urban and environmental contexts).

LO2 A knowledge of how to develop the structural, constructional, material, environmental and legislative aspects of a complex building to a high degree of resolution, with reference to discussions with a team of specialised consultants.

LO3 An understanding of issues relating to the questions of sustainability, and its concomitant architectural, technological, environmental and urban strategies.

LO4 - A critical understanding of, and ability to present complex design proposals through appropriate forms of representation (eg. verbal, drawing, modelling, photography, film, computer, installation, performance and workshop techniques).
