Content
Students select from a range of detailed design 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.

It is expected that students demonstrate a thorough application of the various technical aspects of building design including construction, services and detailing. This includes an understanding of the various technical aspects of built form—construction, services, climatic control and site planning. The developed design studios typically require the design of medium to large-scale architectural propositions with complex constraints to a professional level of programmatic, spatial and material integration and resolution taken to a developed design stage.
Outcomes
Students are able to (1) translate regulatory constraints and urban policies into design parameters; (2) synthesise at a professional level architectural propositions of substantial complexity; (3) integrate to a professional level advanced technical, historical and environmental knowledge in the resolution of an architectural proposition; and (4) demonstrate a full range of architectural communication skills at a professional level.
