20 Credits AUTUMN

Co-requisites: ARC103

Aims/Description: This unit is designed to introduce students to architectural and landscape design in a studio context. The unit will be structured through a series of short design projects, which students will be asked to respond to in an imaginative and critical manner. Methods of representation will be introduced, including model-making, technical drawing and sketching. Students will study freehand and three-dimensional abstract design as a means of evaluating, creating and representing designs. Experimentation, subjectivity and objectivity will enhance the learning process.

Teaching Methods: Studio Based Work
Assessment: Portfolio

Notes: This module, forming part of the BA (Hons) degree in Architecture and Landscape, is recognised and approved by the Royal Institute of British Architects' Registration Board for exemption from the RIBA Part One Examination in Architecture
