Description: This final design studio of the four-year BA in Architecture focuses on architecture’s relationship to site and landscape, probing environmental considerations and relationships between systems and processes across the scales of the building, the city, and the territory. The course is conducted as design research studio in which students pursue a topic and develop a brief under a conceptual umbrella provided by the instructor. The studio is linked to the ARCH 403 design research seminar taken the semester prior to the studio.
