ARCH 135 - Arch Design Fundamentals
Credit Hours: 3
Lecture Hours: 0
Laboratory Hours: 6
Prerequisite(s): ARCH 125
In this foundational design studio, students will develop their understanding of architectural design thinking, iterative design, design communication (both verbal and written), and architectural drawing techniques. Students will apply this knowledge to develop a series of architectural design projects. These projects will focus on small-scale architectural interventions and require students to hone their creative thinking to develop an architectural response.
Student Learning Outcomes of the Course:
1. Understand professional communication methods and architectural orthographic drawings.
2. Use the iterative design processes to develop projects.
3. Describe aesthetic goals for both building and site.
4. Formulate design solutions that incorporate user requirements.
