Arch 810 Architectural Design 1

The purpose of this course is to expose you to the range of possibilities entailed in various modes of design, to make you aware of the power of architecture has to shape our world as well as our perceptions of that world, and to encourage you to find mechanisms that will assist you in a consistently evolving process of learning about design. In studio, you will explore architecture through the use of analytical and creative tools. These tools will be used to transform the banal and mundane into the marvelous. Throughout the semester, the importance of representation and the craft of making will be stressed to uncover the intelligence of material and form.
