Prerequisites: Full Major status in Architecture.
Students will learn how to construct, propose, research, and analyze architectural questions, and will develop critical understandings of varied architectural theories and their relationship to practice, so as to be able to position themselves within the profession and civic society. The coursework includes reading, analysis, presentation, and discussion of key texts of architectural theory in order to develop a critical understanding of architectural theory within the context of culture and society. To understand the relationships between forms of representation, architectural ideas, construction, and spatial experience, students will learn the strengths and limitations of architectural drawings (plans, sections, elevations, etc.) and other forms of representation (such as photographs and digital and physical models).
