ARCH 5200 - Graduate Architecture Design 1


This first graduate design studio addresses the fundamentals of architecture while focusing on the relationship between building and landscape in terms of conceptual, pragmatic, ideological, aesthetic, and functional issues. As such, it endeavors to examine critically the disciplinary boundary between building and landscape. It also critically assesses the connections and inherent complexities between an institutional situation, workplace activity, and residential inhabitation in order to explore questions of publicness and privacy. This studio also addresses the tectonic dimensions of construction and structure in architectural design.

This course is required of all first-year architecture graduate students in the M. Arch. program.

When Offered: Fall term annually.
