ARCH71-132: Creative Design Studio: Material

Description

This subject explores material and detail in relation to the design process. By interrogating and making a small scaled project such as furniture or cabinetry, students will develop and extend design thinking related to human scale, ergonomics, materiality and craft. Processes will be explored and refined through research and prototyping. A design drawing and model making discovery course is integrated within the subject. It also has a close relationship with the Digital Modelling and Prototyping subject.
