Studio 7:Integrated Design

The final design studio of the BAS program proposes programs for various mid-scale buildings, from housing to industrial or cultural projects. Design projects are intended to incorporate building systems in a comprehensive manner. In keeping with CACB accreditation criteria, each project must display an "Ability to project a comprehensive design based on an architectural idea, a building program and a site. The design or designs should integrate structural and environmental systems, building envelopes, building assemblies, life-safety provisions, and environmental stewardship." While this scope is covered over two terms, the first term is devoted to site selection, architectural design, and building and environmental systems. A series of technical studies are integrated with the final design project. PREREQ: ARCH 3515 (design studio inst, lec, and site visits), cr 6 (in Design stream) (taught afternoons).
