  • Course Outcomes

Viewed from past experience, as students proceed from basic design practice processing single goal forms and enter into architectural design, the first/frequent difficulty encountered is being at a loss for how to proceed to grasp and integrate complex topics regarding architectural design. Moreover, a more technical difficulty is being unable to truly grasp/use communication tools and integrate a specific real sense of space (spatial size/body feeling/spatial atmosphere and situation….). In view of these issues, this studio design practice provides some steps to guide students into the design domain gradually. The direction of this design practice stresses drills on interaction between spatial size, structural types, activity, the five senses and functional use to cultivate the complex relational abilities of each one to regarding spatial form and content function.
