In this design studio students are introduced to the field of architectural design and the design process.

We examine various aspects of this functional art including scale, texture, volume, void, light, rhythm, and form. Basic principals of architectural structures and a brief historical overview are presented. Students attempt to apply these principals in solving practical problems. They are expected to develop basic architectural drafting skills to represent three-dimensional space in two dimensions.

The course includes model building skills and an actual design project.
