EXST014: Discovering Architecture

Discovering Architecture is a foundation course to introduce students to the practice and profession of architecture. The class will explore a broad range of topics related to the field of architecture including design, theory, history and applications in professional practice. Coursework will also include an introduction to the technical skills required in the design process. The two-week course consists of a series of demonstrations, readings, discussion, research, and design projects meant to foster hands-on experience in all facets of architecture and design. The studio environment at the School of Architecture will serve as a laboratory for thoughtful experimentation in space making and media representation. Creative intent, critical thinking, visual-spatial reasoning, iterative problem solving, abstract interpretation, and systematic analysis will be the fundamental skills students will address as part of the course.
