ARCD 350 - Architecture Studio 5 (4)

This studio will deal with the identity of public buildings and their intersection with the social, cultural and political realities, directions and aspirations of their communities. Through an analysis of context and program, and a critical appreciation of building precedents, students will provide architectural solutions that explore the design of collective space, institutional form, building structure and materiality. Throughout the studio, the emphasis will be on understanding and devising design processes that enable an analytical and rigorous approach to architectural design.
