The design studio is defined as a pedagogical and physical environment where students experience the process of design. Its ambition is to guide and support students experiencing the design process by offering the structure to develop their own design methodology, underpinned by a strong research base and an eloquent and critical architectural literacy.

Students select from a range of autonomous studios each structured as an exploration through architectural design. The studios are vertically integrated to offer a wide range of choice of project types and inter-level peer learning. The context will range from formal briefs and competitions to themes informed by research expertise and practice. These typically require the design of medium to large-scale architectural propositions with complex constraints and requirements of research informed experimental projects.
Students are able to (1) develop ethical positions in response to research through complex architectural project requirements; (2) synthesise at a professional level architectural propositions of substantial complexity; (3) evaluate architectural proposals in relation to the environmental, historical and social contexts; and (4) demonstrate a full range of architectural communication skills at a professional level.
Indicative assessments in this unit are as follows: folio. Further information is available in the unit outline.

Supplementary assessment is not available in this unit.
