This class is designed to introduce students to ideas, principles, concepts, and methods of architectural design in a studio setting. Through a graduated sequence of exercises, students explore the architectural concepts of space, form, function, scale, site, structure, and inhabitation through analytic and generative approaches. What are the expected overall learning goals? The Pratt Pre- -year undergraduate program. It aims to provide students with an inclusive, enriching, and empowering experience to help them decide which major to choose prior to college selection. The program also aims to prepare students for successful admission to college. What are the expected student learning outcomes? Students will be able to: -demonstrate an understanding of fundamental architectural design concepts -analyze principles and systems of architectural design ordering in two and three dimensions -gain an understanding of systematic design strategies that incorporate multiple scales of interaction -develop abstract and concrete representation skills and simulation of 3D design ideas -demonstrate abilities in architectural drawing and modeling techniques -constructively participate in studio culture, such as discussions and critiques with professors and peers about the architectural design process For which summer section(s) is the course being proposed (e.g., Summer I, II, III or combination)?
