The architecture as research studio is structured into a number of tutor-led themes aligned to complex issues associated with the built environment. Students devise a research model that includes data gathering, recursive experimentation, weekly discussion and critique leading to an architectural proposition. Research findings are presented through a process of continuous engagement with a self-directed individual case study problem.
Availability2021 Course Timetables
- Semester 2 - 2021
This course replaces the following course(s): ARBE4121A and ARBE4121B. Students who have successfully completed ARBE4121A or ARBE4121B are not eligible to enrol in ARBE6232.
On successful completion of the course students will be able to:
1. Develop an expansive and diverse variety of references (theoretical and practical)
2. Apply architectural research through creative practice
3. Demonstrate iterative experimentation to a design process
4. Integrate research findings within a design project
5. Communicate architectural research ideas both visually and orally.
- Research-based design
- Urban context reading, creating analysis, data processing
- Design research hypothesis
- Abstract systems, working models, analogue/digital testing
- Schematic design (argument and strategy)
- Scheme integration into urban context
- Design research progression, resolution and refinement
