Intended learning outcomes

The overall purpose of the Studio Project is to ensure individual progression and individual deepening of knowledge, competence and judgement within architecture and related knowledge areas. During the Advanced Level of the Degree Programme in Architecture an individual student completes six Studio Projects, each providing an opportunity to apply and develop skills in varied application areas; and tools to reflect on the learning process.

A student who has completed the course should be able to:

• complete and evaluate advanced architectural design tasks critically, creatively and independently, in such a way that a progression of knowledge and understanding; competence and skills; judgement and approach is demonstrated, in relation to projects previously carried out as part of the programme.

• present, visualise and discuss the completed project within a relevant discourse and a broad architectural context, by using appropriate representation techniques.

• demonstrate the capacity for teamwork and collaboration with various constellations

• present an independent work process and a reflection on the learning process

• document and present previously completed projects in a portfolio

If the student has already completed projects at the advanced level, the student should demonstrate a clear progression of knowledge and skills. The extent of the progression depends on how many projects at the advanced level the student has already completed. At the start of the project, the previously completed projects should be presented in a portfolio to the teacher responsible for the course.
