Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

The teaching is studio-based. Specific course assignments, themes, design criteria, and deliverables for Studio Projects will be revised and settled before every academic year by the examiner. Studio Projects include both individual work and teamwork, following the planning and course assignments decided by the examiner.

Intended learning outcomes

After the course the student should be able to

  • Implement and assess qualified architectural assignments critically, creatively and independently in a way a progression of knowledge and understanding, skills and ability, analytical skills and ways of approaching the subject, and architectural qualities can be shown, in relation to previously completed projects during the architectural education.
  • Present, visualize and discuss the complete project from a relevant discourse and a broad architectural context, with applicable representational techniques.
  • When assigned, show the ability to work in teams and collaborate in groups with different compositions. 
  • Present an independent working process and be able to reflect on the personal learning.
  • Document work and when requested, present all previously completed projects in education in a portfolio.
  • Critically reflect on your own research and project from a sustainability perspective.

If the student previously has completed design project courses on an advanced level, the student should clearly show a progression of knowledge and skills. The rate and scope of progression depends on the number of projects on the advanced level the student has completed. At the start of the course these projects should be presented in a portfolio for the studio teacher who will assess it.
