Module overview

This module builds upon the design modules within Parts 1 and 2 and places specific focus on the process of designing structures where the solutions and elements are fully integrated. It emphasises the relationship between context, user requirements, structure, material and space. Each year, a design brief is set that provides the opportunity to pursue, investigate and experiment with individual design methodologies and processes within a real world context.

Students are expected to use the knowledge gained in previous years and develop designs in a manner that balances form, function and technical considerations. This module seeks to operate in similar manner to a professional design office, with rigorous and self-motivated working and communication practices.

Students will use the weekly studio sessions to progress their design work alongside their peers and will receive individual as well as group tutorials. Interim and final reports and presentations to design tutors and fellow students, and possibly external critics from industry, act as milestones for students to demonstrate the design proposal throughout its development.
