  • 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.
