Course frequency: Annually
First time: Study year 2003-2004
Course contents:
The course consists of a project part and a theoretical part. The theoretical part elaborates on topics from previous planning courses, for instance function analysis, design, construction analysis, etc and supplementary lectures will be given on topics such as typology, environment, colour use, building conservation, universal design, detail design and similar topics depending on the nature of the project assignment. The theory part will be highly integrated into the project part. In the project part, the student carries out the architectural planning of a building construction of closely defined dimensions. The functional, aesthetical, technical and economic conditions are analysed and held together. The project part is carried out under guidance and is based on registrations made in the field. A written account, drawings and a model are produced.
Learning outcome:
The goal is for the students to be able to judge syntheses and handle the main challenge of creating good buildings and building environments where the different aspects function, aesthetics, building techniques and economy have been given a balanced judgement in the form of drawings and descriptions.
Learning activities:
The learning itself takes place through a combination of lectures, field work, group work and independent project work, including a presentation.
Teaching support:
Extensive individual supervision is given both in the scheduled hours and outside of these.
Announced at course start. Literature will be adjusted in accordance with the project assignment.
