CREDIT VALUE: 6
PREREQUISITE (IF ANY): NONE
OBJECTIVES: 1.     Ability to design and integrate with due consideration for aesthetic, functional and relationship of different spaces.

2.     Ability to further strengthen the knowledge on creativity appropriate massing/form in relation to site.

3.     Ability to analyze and respond to environmental or site factors (i.e. land profile, accessibility, climate, vegetation, neighboring site & etc.).

4.     Design should include a variety of form, texture, seasonal interest (if there color to provide sensory stimulation.

LEARNING OUTCOMES:

 

At the end of the course the student will have the:

1.     Ability to produce functional and aesthetical design of spaces (A3).

2.     Ability to develop concept and approach of complex design principles, needs and requirements (C3).

3.     Ability to produce design that integrates technology and response to the climate and environment (P4).

TRANSFERABLE SKILLS: Will be able to develop approach for presenting ideas of design in the form of presentation drawings and oral presentation. Will be able to design complex building that integrate technology and respond to environment.
TEACHING-LEARNING AND ASSESSMENT STRATEGY: Learning And Teaching

  • Lectures, demonstrations, site visits, studio practice, and studio guidance.

Assessment strategy:

  • Assessment for this module involves presentation and submission of drawings
SYNOPSIS:  

This course will expose students to more complex building design of specific function. The course will emphasize on the aspects of contextual issues which include responsive environmental ecology with critical evaluation on site and  surrounding, community processes which relate to human values and socio‑culture, human needs as well as detailed building technology application of complex structure, site planning as well as formal and informal public interaction space.

Emphases are still given to application that involves energy efficiency which will

cover aspects of climate and environment, site and topography as well as disabled friendly.

As a final exercise, students will be required to consolidate their knowledge and information gained through a final design project consisting of a complex building of multi-      function space and be able to apply environmental consideration in their design taking into   consideration community, climate and environment, site and topography, space, form, material,   structure and construction technology.
