Architectural Fundamentals Studio I

DSGN 223



This studio introduces the Formal and Typological Orders of architecture with emphasis on the comprehension of delineators of space as abstract entities, and on the theoretical development of design concepts. A sequence of exercises guides the transformation of basic design into elementary architectural design and progress from a single space and its adjacencies to sequences of spaces with specific functions. Exercises also involve the typological analysis of notable works of architecture. Students develop model building and diagramming skills and produce a portfolio of the process and design. Prerequisite(s): ARCH 101, DRAW 115.
