ARCH71-111: Special Topic in Design Technology


This subject will provide an understanding of a more unique/intense area of architectural studies that will both contribute to and support professional outcomes of the Master of Architecture program. The focus is on a refined topic, perhaps experimentation in architecture, historical study, representation, technology, or dissemination. The topic offered will vary depending on staffing/research specialities. The concentrated approach develops research skills and focus in a particular field of study. A comprehensive understanding of the possibilities in and around the assigned topic is essential. Students will display problem-solving skills that challenge day-to-day concepts and encourage lateral thinking and shall be assessed through project-based tasks that involve graphic/written communication, design application/synthesis, and demonstration of critical reasoning.
