Architecture Project 3:2

  • Number of credits 5 credits

About the course

The course introduces students to the concept of incremental design and explores how it can be applied at various architectural scales, from urban fabric scale to the detailed material scale. The main aim of exploring the process of incremental design is to gain an understanding of how to produce maximum benefits with minimum resources.
The course examines how the existing context can be seen as a resource that includes community structures, social sustainability, locally available materials, local tectonics, local expertise and programmatic elements. These elements will be developed and supplemented where necessary to produce strategies for possible interventions to both the urban scale and the building scale.
