Course description
Exercises on design issues. In order to apply the skills learned in "Urban architectural design exercise 3" in the latter part of the second year to more sophisticated urban architecture, design a number of design issues. The first quarter is dwellings with RC construction and total surface of 3000 to 5000 m 2, and it keeps continuity from the design object of the second year (public, RC construction, asurface of 1000 ~ 1600 m 2). In the 2nd quarter, it corresponds with 5 programs of the public and the private. Students are divided into about 20 persons each group and are instructed by one faculty member and students will skill up their skills (drawing ability, modeling ability, spatial grasping ability, graphicizing ability) in the Department of Architecture. Also, at the time of submitting tasks, carefully conduct the final review committee and also communicate design ethics.
Purpose of class
Students learn from design of dwelling unit, way of gathering, relationship with urban area and design the dwellings which are important elements of urban landscape.
