Upon completion of this course, the student will be better able to:

  • Apply the 'design process' as an approach to developing thoughtful, creative and responsible solutions to practical site and building design problems.
  • Generate design solutions that regard influences, requirements, and constraints as design opportunities rather than design limitations.
  • Identify, analyze, and evaluate the factors from the natural and built environments that must be considered and understood when formulating design options.
  • Propose design solutions that respond to the influences and changing patterns of the built environment and that reflects the interrelationship of context, site and building.
  • Produce a workable design solution to a residential planning problem.
  • Illustrate design solution of orthographic and axonometric drawings, using various techniques.
