ARC531 Design Studio VII

[3–4, 5 cr.]

This studio is an elaboration on projects with a continuing emphasis on technical, structural and environmental parameters in design. These are covered through the investigation of complex building types, stressing the necessity of adapting computer-aided means as a design tool in the early phases of the design process, namely from analysis to design production. The studio also investigates emerging technologies in environmental systems as a means to making new buildings more responsive to environmental issues.

Prerequisite: ARC432 Design Studio VI and Co-requisite: ARC501 Design Workshop I
