The Graduation Studio in the Masters of Architecture Program is run over two terms; the first term is the Research Studio where students develop the intellectual inquiry and research that defines their project, along with their initial architectural proposals. The second term accommodates the Major Design Studio where students develop this into a comprehensively resolved architecture project.
In the Research Studio students select from a series of design elective options each offering a specific architectural proposition allied with the program streams, namely: Architecture + High Performance Technology, Architecture + Housing, Architecture + Social Agency, and Architecture + Urban Conditions. Emphasis is placed on theoretical research, exploration, speculation and analysis aimed at a conscious framing of an architectural position. An ability to select appropriate architectural strategies, representation methods, computational instruments and technical solutions will be pursued. Studio-based programs guide the definition of a conceptual architectural proposal that describes the parameters and architectural ambitions of individual projects. The proposal will be developed to a comprehensive level of resolution in ARCH7202: Major Design Studio.
