About this Unit
This unit will introduce the concept of Sub-urban Transformation, where the architect is an agent of progress and change in the built environment. Students will learn to use architectural design techniques as a medium for speculation and advocacy in the public realm and in daily life of the city. Rethinking the Sub-urban will investigate domesticity at the scale of residential projects and communities. Students will be concurrently trained in the use of Building Information Modelling (BIM) as a means to develop project work and collaborate as they explore new ways of building the suburban fabric. Assessments will be project-based in real world scenarios and will incorporate sustainable strategies of design.
