In this course, students experience design as it is done in architecture. Arc Studio introduces students to a full range of design concepts, current trends, and architectural techniques through drawing exercises, analyses of precedents, and explored design methods. Design skills are developed through conceptualizing and representing architectural theories. Discussions regarding architecture's role in mediating culture, nature and technology will help develop architectural vocabulary. Students will design discover architecture through sketching, drawing on board, abstract models, and CAD. During second semester, students devote time to developing a "green" architectural structure, by following current LEED standards. In addition, this course is designed to contribute to any students' architectural portfolio.
