Through design projects offered by visiting national and international design practitioners and school staff, this unit of study will provide students with the opportunity to explore a wide range of design issues and ideas in an intensive design studio environment. At the successful completion of this unit of study students will have: extended their ability to develop creative responses to a design brief or situation; extended their understanding of the theoretical, historical, cultural, environmental or technical framework of design; applied these understandings and demonstrated good architectural judgement; and communicated these ideas and understandings effectively through presentation means including drawings, models and CAD, which are assessed in a jury context. This unit is Pass/Fail. Contact hours: 40 hours intensive. Assessment and preparation: 38 hours.
