To develop capability in the design of complex architectural projects included in the generality of urban, industrial, and city fringe architectures, with particular reference to high- rise, long- span and large-volume typologies.
By the end of the course the student will be able to:
Research a range of sources and ideas in the interrogation of a complex architecturalbriefbydrawingonarchitecturalprecedentcasestudies,theoretical writings, representational systems, technical studies and form-making research processes.
