Aims/Description: This unit is designed to introduce students to architectural and landscape design in a studio context. The module 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. An integrated project brief for the final semester studio project is taught jointly across the department of Landscape Architecture and Architecture and reviewed and assessed jointly. This integrated project enables students to apply the skills and knowledge they have acquired in Architecture and Landscape Architecture to a single project site.
Restrictions on availability: To students studying the BA (Hons) Architecture and Landscape degree course.
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, and the Architects Registration Board for exemption from the RIBA Part One Examination in Architecture.
