This unit builds on skills developed in previous studios and applies these to a range of focused projects that extend and explore transformational practices in spatial design and interior architecture. In this studio successful project outcomes will be of a high intermediate level of complexity. They will provide an opportunity to integrate learning across the course with the development of responsive design practices. A number of focused studio projects will be offered.


Upon successful completion of this unit students will be able to:

  1. Respond creatively to complex design briefs;
  2. Investigate relevant concepts and precedents in design discourse and incorporate these into design proposals;
  3. Understand the role of key built environment professionals and apply the conventions for the production of construction documentation;
  4. Demonstrate the resolution of competing needs during the development of a design proposal with increasing awareness and independence;
  5. Explore and communicate design schemes through appropriate modes of representation;
  6. Understand and apply the rules of occupational health and safety appropriate to the discipline practice.
