ARCH71-124: Design Practice Futures and Frameworks


This subject will focus on the business of architecture through the application of creative and speculative design methods to the development of an emergent model of architecture practice.  The model will be informed by the synthesis of an architect’s role as public advocate, understanding of the architects act, the development of a set of ethical values and critical analysis of precedent research in the context of contemporary challenges and opportunities of technological disruption, climate change, risk, population displacement, staff resourcing and management, finance, health and safety and quality assurance.  Values explored in the Architectural Design and Urban Thesis subject will provide a further line of inquiry and focus.
