Prepares students to enter the profession of architecture. The course framework has been developed to support the transition from an architecture student to a professional architect.

An elective project is the vehicle that allows students to integrate, illustrate and justify an architectural solution in response to; the architectural type, a client's brief, the site strategy, the relationship the building has with the environment, and architectural history, theory and criticism.

The theme is Problems of Architectural Practice.
