|School||Edinburgh College of Art
||College||College of Humanities and Social Science
|Credit level (Normal year taken)||SCQF Level 11 (Postgraduate)
||Availability||Not available to visiting students
|Summary||Architectural 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.
