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 Major Design Studio, students continue in their previous studio group to create rigorous and compelling architecture. Each studio explicitly supports the detailed design development of individual architectural proposals as realised through appropriate modes of architectural representation. Emphasis is placed on development of the architectural proposition through critique and testing. The developed design will reach an ambitious level of programmatic, spatial, material, environmental and technological integration and resolution, with an ambitious and imaginative level of experimentation. Students will evaluate and develop architectural representation styles and techniques to establish the most effective methods to communicate their work. Presentation to peers, eminent critics and practitioners occurs through studio reviews and a public graduation exhibition.
