EDAD320 Architectural Design III 3 cr.
Students are exposed to a design project of increasing complexity and an investigation of mixed use programming at an urban site. Design work includes experimentation with the design and selection of structural systems and application of sustainable principles to site and building design concepts and details.
Development of architectural design skills that address the issues of housing both locally and globally viewed through a lens of cultural differences: as in typical minimum housing sizes and varied user profiles. The coursework includes investigation of elements of urban tissue such as plazas, squares, street edges and systems of city form understood through street patterns and greenways followed up in a site study focused on the primary design project for the studio. Students explore needs, values, norms and spatial patterns as a means to sensitize them to diverse physical and cultural environments that culminate in the design of a mixed-use housing project in a local urban contex
