D1 FIRST YEAR
The first design studio is developed for beginning architecture, landscape architecture, and interior architecture students. The course is designed to immediately engage students in thinking about and making space through drawings and models in a series of exercises.
The exercises are set with specific parameters and focus on an analytical, visual design process leading into conceptual development of architectural form and space. Students will analyze visual information and translate 2D interpretations into three dimensional assemblages. The process of assembling becomes a conceptual operative technique, focusing on connecting conceptual, structural, organizational and spatial terms.
