ARCH 4830 - Integrated Design Development


This studio is a technology-based design studio emphasizing the materialization and making of architectural design projects. The integration of building code requirements for fire protection, life safety, accessibility, building environmental systems, structure, construction, and materiality is central to the effective achievement of design intent. Students become aware of how these issues affect and inform design decisions. They learn to integrate technology, systems, and materials in the comprehensive resolution of building design and gain exposure to construction documents and design documentation. Construction and site visits are an integral part of the studio as is an integrated electronic media seminar on CAD applications. Students must coregister for ARCH 4540 Professional Practice 1, a concurrent 2-credit course that introduces codes, the regulatory process, agreements, contract documents, building design cost control, and administration. This course is required of all architecture undergraduates in the B.Arch. program.

Prerequisites/Corequisites: ARCH 4920 Final Project Design Studio, Corequisite: ARCH 4540 Professional Practice 1.

When Offered: Fall and spring terms annually.



Credit Hours: 5
