Architecture Design I
In this course students will begin at initial planning states and develop a building project with architectural knowledge that applies toward values geared towards client specification, building codes and so much more.
Basic principles of design and architecture, and space articulation.
- Examine the critical role of materials and methods for the design and construction of buildings.
- The primary focus is on materials and systems, their properties and connections, and their intrinsic relationship to structural systems and environmental performance.
- Students will develop a fundamental understanding of the relationship of materiality to construction systems and techniques, how building materials are manufactured, and how a material’s modular form, dimensions, and intrinsic qualities influence the design process.
- Students will learn about various building systems, and how these systems assist in the expression of a design concept, through an examination of precedent projects whose design concepts were generated by material logics and systems.
- Students will work hands-on with building materials (concrete, wood, metal, etc.) to get an understanding of each material’s properties.
- An insight into concepts of architecture: space, form, enclosure, and quality of space, principles of design like harmony, symmetry, etc. and their application.
- Exercises related to elements of design, and perception of space.
- Parameters of design, anthropometrics, human activity and the use of space, Interrelationship of architectural space to form, structure, and materials to help students develop a visual and tacit structural understanding through models and installations.
- Understanding nature as a contextual setting.
- Design of a simple architectural form based on an understanding of anthropometrics.
- Study of the built environment and to develop a basic understanding of space and form.
- Gain skills of drawing and representation; assimilate learning’s of graphics, construction, structures, and computers to apply to basic design.
- Looking at the immediate built environment and understanding its fundamental components and their impact on the surroundings.
- Exercises relating personal experiences to behavioral needs and translating them into documented information that can be used as a basis for design.
- Problems aimed at drafting and presentation skills in the 2-D format.
- Systematic introduction to issues related to design, its components and space standards; design of a basic shelter; an architectural form with a specific function.
