Rattanakosin Island, Bangkok, Thailand Type of project:
First, design research may be viewed as an indication of a general interest within contemporary architectural discourse to integrate aspects of both the profession and the discipline of architecture. As such, the research and design work produced in a design research sequence may be seen as both discursive and projective, that is, responsive to the internal discourses of architecture as an autonomous discipline while simultaneously engaging its exterior, i.
As a means of pursuing a set of interests particular to the work characteristic of their research and design practices outside of academia, the design research studio, or laboratory, provides faculty with the opportunity to develop a set of questions and problems related to a particular area of design research through which their respective students engage and advance those particular questions and problems.
In this particular configuration, then, the architectural studio is not simply a course for disseminating existing forms of knowledge and design expertise as part of the standard architectural education.
The expectation, then, is that by the end of the spring term, each student will have a highly developed design proposal represented by a substantial amount of presentation material. The fall semester seminar is comprised of two phases of work, while the spring semester studio is comprised of three phases of work, the structure of which helps to ensure that each student reaches his or her full potential over the course of the two-semester sequence.
While sequential in nature, this phasing structure also produces overlaps at particular points in each semester. The intention here is to encourage productive lines of feedback between the various phases of work, while at the same time providing a clear structure and set of deadlines for each semester.
In the fall semester seminar, the two phases of work include topic research and formal research. These two phases of work combine research related to a particular discursive theme, i.
The intention here is to see analytical and creative work not as separate and discrete endeavors but rather, endemic to one another in the larger context of the creative process. This formal research, whether it consists of material or digital experiments, or perhaps both, also serves to provide a platform for transitioning into the schematic design phase at the beginning of the spring semester studio.
As such, each student is armed with a body of formal research with which to address various issues and challenges related to site and program. This helps to ensure that each FP section is at a similar level of development over the course of the year and as a result can be expected to produce a certain quality as well as quantity of work by the end of the spring semester.The Architectural Building Engineering Technology programs, both associate and bachelor, prepare the student to be proficient in the art, engineering, and technology of designing the built environment relative to the users social, psychological, and aesthetic needs.
The international master’s degree programme in Architecture is a two-year design-oriented study programme. The courses are taught by professionals with wide range expertise in the field of architecture and urban design.
The Design Thesis combines all the facets and skill sets required to design interior spaces. Students will design a two-storey residential interior. They will conduct a client interview, analyze the requirements, wants and needs, and produce a written analysis of the project.
Apply knowledge of the architectural lighting design process, including immersive and environmental lighting design. Apply knowledge and practice with intelligent lighting, moving light consoles and other state of the art technology for use in the theater and concert stages.
These schools have a minimum of one instructor or professor who devotes the majority of their time to lighting design. Individual programs offer degrees at bachelors, masters or doctoral levels as well as certificates and minors in architectural lighting design.
