The first to third classes are done in lecture format and explain the circumstances that architectural designers face. From the fourth class on, lectures are given by globally successful guest speakers on practical, specific design techniques. Students will submit design exercise problems and hold discussions at review sessions.
Students will gain an understanding of the various roles of engineers and designers in architectural design and acquire the design skills to comprehensively improve the quality of architecture.
The instructor will show practical examples of architect's collaborative techniques with electrical design engineering, air-conditioning and sanitation equipment engineering, illumination design, sign design, and landscape design, such that students understand the role of architectural designers.
Integration of technical engineers and designers, collaboration, engineering, design, practical technique
|✔ Specialist skills||✔ Intercultural skills||✔ Communication skills||✔ Critical thinking skills||✔ Practical and/or problem-solving skills|
Students in this course will examine the social circumstances and the role of designers in creating good architecture. The instructor will explain collaborative design techniques with engineering related to architecture, as well as various management when a building is being constructed.
