Second Year Studio Projects

ARCH 208 Form and Function

This studio places major emphasis on introducing students to the basic form determinants of architecture—from limited scope exercises to complete building designs. Using diagrams and sketches, plans, sections, elevations and models, students explore the spatial ordering of human activity, site and landscape analysis, light and air modulation, simple environmental controls and energy conservation, basic framing systems, volumetric organization and the materials of building skins and envelopes.

ARCH 209 Sustainability, Site, and Context

This studio places major emphasis on the synthesis of basic form determinants of medium-sized, multi-story public building in the urban environment. Students demonstrate competence in basic architectural design, and are preparing for the third-year focus on materials and methods of building construction.
