ARCH 1115-1116

Qualifying Design Laboratory

An immersive, interactive course focused on inquiry, experimentation, discovery, and synthesis. Employs a series of iterative drawing and modeling exercises, at a beginnner’s level, in two and three dimensions across multiple scales. Develops self-reliance and self-critique, which opens intellectual horizons. Challenges expand and deepen aesthetic judgment and critical understanding. Develops fundamental thinking and making skills that advance abilities to solve problems by exploring strategies towards viable consequences.

ARCH 1115 and 1116 are restricted to students transferring into the School of Architecture + Design and changing their major to architecture, landscape architecture, interior design, or industrial design.

(1H, 6L, 3C)
