EDAD450 Architecture Degree Project I (Research) 3 cr.


This course is the first of a two-semester senior architectural degree project. This project will be the vehicle for students to develop techniques to self sufficiently research, explore, develop and ultimately demonstrate the validity of an architectural thesis / proposition put forth by the student. In this semester students will identify a thesis / proposition of personal interest to them; they will develop a comprehensive preliminary architectural program that supports the thesis / proposition; and they will identify a locally available site which will provide an appropriate context for the proposed project. Through research, evaluation, analysis and testing, the student will confirm the feasibility of the chosen project to accomplish the architectural goals and support the thesis / proposition stated by the student.

Prerequisites: EDAD410 Concurrent or prior enrollment in Architectural Design IV (Required of all undergraduates in the program)
