The student chooses a project for the term to design from a collection of instructor-approved projects requiring real site considerations. By discussing the relevant design criteria with the instructor and selection of a hypothetical client outside of class, the student develops and refines the program of space requirements and acquires an appreciation of the in-depth functionality of architecture, especially space adjacency requirements. The study includes an analysis of a site, structure, codes, circulation, material usage, and sustainability and energy considerations. Schematic and preliminary designs, with an emphasis on sketching for study purposes, presentations drawings and construction documents are produced by CAD (Computer Aided Drafting & Design) AutoDesk software. Students build a study and final model, and are required to submit a progress report. An emphasis is placed on a thorough coordination of the work, application of current technology and application of the knowledge gained in the ARET program.
