Scope and Method

ARCH 202 Architectural Design Studio II is the second step of the chain of design studios. In this phase, students are expected to achieve an analysis Site and Architectural program to establish a language to be used in their design and to accomplish the design of the building. Arch 202 is a non-exam course; therefore grading will be made according to the work performed by the student during the term. The term will be divided into stages, each one comprising a different phase of the project. The development of the project will be monitored through panelcritics. Students will have to present their work several times as shown in the timetable to the panel in order to get a grade for each stage.

The method and the process used in the formation of the project are considered to be more important than the final design presented to the final jury. Therefore, students will be expected to be present at the studio, present their work to the panel and participate to discussions during studio hours. Class hours will be essentially used for criticizing the work achieved by the students at home and not for drawing projects. There may be sketch design problems and/or spontaneous quizzes during the semester.



Use of professional design software (like CAD, BIM and other modelling related programs) are strictly prohibited during the course.
