ARCH 240 - Materials and Methods of Arch.

Unit(s): 4

Through a consideration of land use, housing, natural resources, environmental factors, aesthetics and comfort, students will develop a critique of the architecture on the urban fringe. Students will be introduced to alternative methods of design and building in contrast to accepting normative practices as a given. They will be introduced to vernacular, contemporary and renewable construction methods and how they relate to building type, location, life-cycle and design issues. Students will develop individual projects, which follow the design process from schematic presentation through design development and basic construction documents.
