Architecture Degree Project Studio I


Degree Project Studio is the capstone of the BAC's educational program for Bachelor of Architecture students. This course places architecture within its cultural and social contexts. Students develop their own concept and approach through modes of learning, working and thinking associated with academic work and practice. This is an integrative project where students incorporate building systems, materiality and structure as part of the creative work of the studio. AR501 is the first semester of a two-semester comprehensive project, with the same instructor for both semesters. It meets for nine contact hours each week for Fall and Spring or Spring and Fall, depending on when the student initially enters the Degree Project Studio. Meetings include discussions, writing, critiques, presentations and in-class work on design. NAAB criteria emphasized: Design Thinking, Cultural Diversity, Accessibility, Comprehensive Design, Building Systems, Sustainability, Building Envelope Systems, Building Service Systems, and Building Materials and Assemblies.
