Not available in 2021OnlineOnline-TT
Offered in intensive mode, these design studios require an intensity of focus and rapidity in development of the design exploration. Students are encouraged to develop individual architectural identity on the basis of technical competence rather than as a consequence of it. Propositions are complex in resolution and exhibit a considered theoretical basis for design.

The studio projects in the Intensive Architecture Studio typically require the design of medium to large-scale architectural propositions with complex contextual constraints and requirements of research informed experimental projects.
Students are able to (1) propose ethical positions in response to research through architectural requirements; (2) synthesise architectural propositions of substantial complexity; (3) integrate technical and environmental knowledge in the resolution of an architectural proposition; (4) incorporate and express, whilst working in intensive time frames, the breadth of professional concerns affecting the design process

; and (5) demonstrate a range of architectural communication skills at a professional level.
Indicative assessments in this unit are as follows: portfolio. Further information is available in the unit outline.

Supplementary assessment is not available in this unit.
