The studio course introduces architecture, urban and environmental planning, and architectural history to the built environment related to scales from the body to buildings, landscapes, and cities.Students explore comprehensive and foundational design principles, skill sets, and critical thinking.
Placeholder course for students studying abroad
Summer study abroad in Vicenza, Italy. Students will be introduced to Italian culture through the study of architecture, landscape architecture, and city planning. Both the formal ideals as well as the constructed reality of these three subjects will be studied through critical observation and documentation of universal conditions and critical junctures.
Vicenza Program II will be taught in the summer study abroad program in Vicenza, Italy. Students will continue to be introduced to Italian culture through the study of architecture, landscape architecture, and city planning.
Introductory design problems in architecture for First Professional degree students. Emphasizes developing a systemic approach to design on the land and in the city through experience with a constructional kit of parts and an awareness of the role of architectural theory and history in the design process. The faculty reviews all work in ARCH 6010-6020 to determine the progress and potential of each student.
The Building Workshop I addresses building science and technology topics that influence the built environment for safe and healthy human occupation. BIW 1 focuses on the dimension and performance of basic elements of construction, analyzed through a variety of historical, typological, and geographic precedents.
Intermediate-level design problems, emphasizing structure, enclosure, life safety and building systems. Prerequisite: ALAR 7010
The Building Integration Workshop Series addresses building science and technology topics that influence the built environment for safe and healthy human occupation. BIW III focuses on the synthesis of building structure, construction, energy use, and ethical considerations. Students develop a complete architectural project, critical building sections, and construction details using Building Information Modeling and other tools.
Teaching Experience Prerequisite: Permission of the chair.
