This course focuses on construction materials, systems and integrated design.  Through the careful study of buildings that relate concept to construction systems and tectonics, students develop an appreciation for the value of fully resolved execution.  This study locates architecture at the juncture of design intention and technical means. 
The focus of this studio is integrated architectural design - a synthesis of concept and construct addressing design strategy, program, site, construction, and technology.   Students’ work will be informed by exploration of urban issues, history and culture as well as materiality and craft. Design proposals will be expected to address structure and environmental systems, life safety, accessibility, and material assemblies.
