Course code ARBE6230Units 30Level 6000Faculty of Engineering and Built EnvironmentSchool of Architecture and Built Environment

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, a site strategy, the relationship the building has with the environment, and architectural history, theory and criticism

The theme is Problems of Architectural Practice. ARBE6222 and ARBE6230 constitute a whole of year sequence in which one project is complete. Both must be completed to meet the requirements of the sequence.
