ARC 201 Architectural Design: Environment

Students in ARC 201 investigate the relationships between the environment and built form. Environment, from the global scale of climate to the local scale of physical context, and user needs are presented as the principal emphases of the ARC 201 studio. These issues represent both external and internal factors that shape a building and make its presence relevant to its context. The constructed physical context and natural attributes such as solar orientation, topography, and vegetation are interpreted as critical determinants of the building design process

ARC 202 Architectural Design: Form

Projects in ARC 202 focus on the relationship between idea and form, supported by theories of architectural ordering principles, spatial arrangements, and form. Students investigate composition and precedent in an analogous manner to develop a repertoire of conceptual form generators.
