ARCH1080 supports the development of foundational skills for architectural research and thinking. The course is focussed on exemplary modern and contemporary architects and their buildings. These form the basis of three discreet yet interdependent ‘case study’ projects. The first two projects aim to develop student skills in architectural description. The third project aims to develop student skills in the analysis and interpretation of architectural strategies. Together they teach elementary tools for the study and communication of architectural ideas and meaning.
