ARCT5201 Detailed Design Studio
- 12 points
|Semester 1||UWA (Perth)||Face to face|
|Semester 2||UWA (Perth)||Face to face|
- 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.
- 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.

- The availability of units in Semester 1, 2, etc. was correct at the time of publication but may be subject to change.
- All students are responsible for identifying when they need assistance to improve their academic learning, research, English language and numeracy skills; seeking out the services and resources available to help them; and applying what they learn. Students are encouraged to register for free online support through GETSmart; to help themselves to the extensive range of resources on UWA's STUDYSmarter website; and to participate in WRITESmart and (ma+hs)Smart drop-ins and workshops.
- Unit readings, including any essential textbooks, are listed in the unit outline for each unit one week prior the commencement of study. The unit outline will be available via the LMS and the UWA Handbook. Reading lists and essential textbooks are subject to change each semester.
