Following Architectural Design and Drawing III, students will combine art, technical, and other skills required of an architect and train their design expressions through the design of various buildings.
This is the last architectural design course at the undergraduate level, and requires that students independently think and offer proposals regarding not only the building as an individual but regarding its relationship with the urban space or the existence of the architectural space in society. Like Design and Drawing III, architects from both inside and outside Japan playing active roles on the front lines will be invited to speak, realizing discussion and expression of architecture at an exceptionally high level.
By the end of this course, students will have nurtured their skills of "critiquing", "identifying problems", "creating concepts", and "expression" as a result of their thinking independently and offering proposals regarding the existence of the architectural space in the urban space and society.

To enhance effective learning, students are encouraged to spend a certain length of time outside of class on preparation and review (including for assignments), as specified by the Tokyo Institute of Technology Rules on Undergraduate Learning (東京工業大学学修規程) and the Tokyo Institute of Technology Rules on Graduate Learning (東京工業大学大学院学修規程), for each class.
They should do so by referring to textbooks and other course material.
