This course builds upon and extends the theoretical knowledge gained in the foundation studios through a concrete application of conceptual and perceptual analysis to problems of small and medium scale in design, and the exploration of the limits and means of developing concepts into architectural form. The studio emphasizes the development of representational tools in translating ideas into architectural drawings and models, specifically stressing on the importance of drawing as a design tool.
