ARCH 210 - Architectural Design I

Credit Hours: 4
Lecture Hours: 1
Laboratory Hours: 6

Prerequisite(s): ARCH 135  

Restriction(s): None

Corequisite(s): None

In this design studio, students will apply their technical and conceptual knowledge to develop a series of increasingly complex architectural design projects.  These projects will challenge students to utilize previous design tools while synthesizing new core principles. These core principles will focus the work on topics such as formal arrangement, sustainability, MEP, community engagement, spatial planning, regulatory/code parameters, iterative design, use of precedent, habitable space, and human occupancy.  

Student Learning Outcomes of the Course:  

1. Apply professional communication methods including writing, speaking and creating clear and accurate presentation graphics and architectural orthographic drawings.

2. Apply iterative design processes to develop projects.

3. Analyze how a design is attractive and enhances human experience and the site and community they are built in.

4. Formulate design solutions that incorporate user requirements and sustainable solutions and relevant regulations.
