ARCH 552 – Architectural Design (2G1/3G4)


These graduate-level studio design courses, characterized by architectural problems of increasing scale and complexity, usually one semester in length, require solutions that are thorough in their conception, development, and execution. Approximately twelve studio sections are offered in each regular term, each with a unique focus, but all dedicated to comprehensive architectural design. Examples include: aesthetic and symbolic issues, comprehensive building design, facilities planning, housing, community design, urban design, historic preservation and conservation, the architect as developer, structure, energy systems and conservation, professional practice and management, computer applications to design, and honors studio. Detailed course descriptions for each section are posted during registration. Many sections require that specific 500/600-level architecture lecture/seminar courses be taken prior to or concurrent with the design studio.
