ARCH13-119: Architectural Technology: Structural Design

Description

Architectural Technology: Structural Design focuses upon engineering structures for designers. Building upon fundamental principles learned in the technology and environment stream of Studios 1, 2, 3 and 4, the engineering structures subject develops these concepts in greater detail and asks students to learn and demonstrate competency with the quantitative and analytical aspects of structural design. Furthermore, the ability to integrate structural logic in the service of a design idea is made fundamental and both learned through examination of material, case studies, site visits and precedents as well as through application
